Get Involved

Be part of our story!

Rakonto is a story whose pages are still being written. We need everyday people to sponsor workshops by subscribing to our monthly storybook program, and schools or communities to invite a facilitator to host a workshop!

Monthly Storybook Subscribers

All Rakonto workshops are funded by the patronage of our storybook subscribers. You can bring a child-authored storybook into your home, and we'll use all of the proceeds to fund the education of students in more underserved communities.

Monthly Subscriptions
Host Communities

Bring a Rakonto facilitator into your school or community! Doing so will strengthen the confidence and expressive power of your students and bring innovative pedagogical practices into your community. All of this at no cost! Learn more or request a workshop here:
