You will have a big impact on kids in Africa through your sponsorship of a Little Zebra Books special project. Through your generosity, we will be able to bring even more of our amazing books to children who have never known the joy of reading a book in their own language. Our books are professionally illustrated and designed and feature stories that kids love.

$50 – Sponsor a Sunday School class
Little Zebra Books Sunday School classes bring the Gospel to children using entertaining illustrations and Scripture in their own language.

$1,000 to $5,000
$1,000 – Print 5,000 beautiful Little Zebra Books
Little Zebra Books are all about kids. We make it our top priority to give our books to kids in a format they can use and a language they understand. Our reading events are child-centered activities unlike anything kids have experienced before. We produce thousands of beautiful books and distribute them to kids. For every $1,000 you donate we are able to print and deliver 5,000 books to eager children in Mozambique.
$2,000 – Illustrate a new book
This is a unique opportunity to fund the illustration of a brand new Little Zebra book. Our books are known for their beautiful artwork. We hire only professional artists to produce illustrations that delight children in Africa. Through your sponsorship, you will make it possible for an original book to come into being.
$5,000 – Produce 25,000 books for a new language
Each year, Little Zebra Books starts a small number of new language projects. A language project receives 25,000 new books in their language. In most cases, this is the single largest printing of books to ever take place in that language. Local partners take these books and distribute them to children who speak that language. It’s an amazing opportunity to tackle the problem of illiteracy in the most practical way possible by creating a surplus of beautiful high-quality books.
Current languages in need of funding are:
- Chisena: A language of central Mozambique spoken by more than 1 million people.
- Chinyanja: A language of northern Mozambique spoken by more than 2 million people.
