Elevator Pitch:

Bharat Babies is a publishing house that shares the stories of South Asia through children's books, magazines, and educational content.

Tell us about your business, what inspired you to get into it, what you sell/service you offer, what makes your business stand out and how it impacts you, your community or the environment.

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.

How would you use the FedEx Small Business Grant money to make a significant impact on your business?

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.
