Illuminate began as a dream to see global children's books in the hands of parents, beginning a global dialogue in the home. We want to see our one-for-empowerment model inspire kids to become active in contributing to social issues from a young age. 

Our Mission

To leave no child in the dark. Our innovative model focuses on  providing a global education to kids in need through the sale of our children books. Partnering with world class artists and authors, we publish stories that begin a global conversation. 

Global quality education is not a fairytale, but it starts with a story.
