In partnership with HP and Award Winning Non-Profit Girl Rising, NABU
publishes a new book that explores universal themes of gender roles.
NEW YORK – December 9, 2021
NABU today announced the availability of a new book “Go Stella Go!” The book was created with award-winning girls education non-profit, Girl Rising and, HP, as part of HP’s goal to accelerate digital equity for 150 million people by 2030. Go Stella Go! explores the universal themes of gender roles and stereotypes, highlighting the critical role that boys play in acknowledging gender-based discrimination.
NABU’s focus is on creating books that uplift children around the world and focus on stories with characters developing resilience, combating gender discrimination, and empowering girls to educate their communities. Go Stella Go! is the first in a series of collaborations with HP and Girl Rising. With this partnership, the mission aims to jumpstart a movement to support the creation of locally- created mother tongue books highlighting key issues for 250 million underserved children. Forty percent of children worldwide do not have access to books in their native language, even though native-language instruction is the most cost-effective intervention in early-grade literacy, helping children to reap the benefits of education.
Go Stella Go! is now available in print for purchase globally on online book retailers. Proceeds of the book go to supporting NABU’s ongoing mission of distributing these stories globally. NABU is encouraging anyone to submit a translation in their own mother tongue through their website.
Go Stella Go! Is currently available in English and Swahili and will be distributed digitally for free on NABU’s recently updated App – “NABU: Multilingual books for children” to children in developing countries where books are incredibly scarce and desired.
NABU is a non-profit organization, with a mission to solve the global literacy crisis so that every child can read and rise to their full potential. We disrupt the cycle of poverty by leveraging technology to publish children’s books for free on digital platforms in mother tongue languages.
