Rakonto is a unique business that aims to amplify the voices of children in developing communities by giving them the tools and education needed to develop their creative writing skills.
Rakonto's workshops consist of encouragement, empowerment, and imagination. It is set on ensuring that children take pride in their local heritage, sharing "methods and tools" that encourage creative expression, and positioning the students as "agents of positive social change." The stories that children come up with during the Rakonto workshops are illustrated by the brand and printed into storybooks -- bridging gaps between cultures by ensuring that children from all over the world are able to have their creative voices amplified.
Rakonto's mission is to foster creative thinking as a method of social change, and by doing this for children it is able to ensure a long-term positive impact. It is currently fundraising on Kickstarter.
