Sponsor an Artist
In NABU’s Authentic Book Creation (ABC) Lab, local creators are trained to write and illustrate books in mother tongue languages in regions where they do not exist, ensuring that every child has free access to the essential books that they need to learn to read.
NABU artists create original stories, as well as, curate, translate, adapt, and re-illustrate stories from the world's best children's book authors. Contributions from ABC Lab creators ensure a diverse and well-balanced book collection for children.
It costs NABU $2400 a year to educate a local artist within the ABC Lab.
In the lab, artists translate their artistic abilities from physical to digital. They receive:
- World-class creative training from a team of directors who have worked with world-renowned artists and authors
- Enhanced professional development to become a published author or illustrator
- An opportunity to join NABU’s in-house creative team to develop children’s books across underserved languages and cultures
- Creative skills that propel career development and increased income opportunities
When you sponsor an artist, you’ll receive updates on their journey to improve their skills and a copy of one of their completed books.
