Bharat Babies is a publishing house that shares the stories of South Asia through children's books, magazines, and educational content.
My mission for Bharat Babies started with my journey to motherhood. When I realized that my daughter wasn't going to be able to see herself on the cover of a children's books or see her culture, history, and heritage reflected, I refused to let that story be untold. For us at Bharat Babies our goal is simple, to ensure that every child is the hero of their own story. That they can see stories of their culture, history, and heritage reflected in an accurate and substantial way.
As a small, independent publishing house, generating capital is our biggest stumbling block to our producing books. With this Grant, we would have the ability to produce five diverse children's books that would share the stories of Islam, Hinduism, and India. We would have the ability to reach a broader audience through the FedEx name and share diverse stories. Most importantly, we would be able to have more children of color see themselves as the hero in a story.
