Who we are
We are writers and experts on integration, acculturation and terrorism studies who our concerns are promoting the peace. We believe a way to successfully engage people in peacebuilding is to producing stories for the early stage of life; situations favoring the promotion of peace is exactly in our childhood. In today’s society, especially with how globalized the world has become, it is important for children to learn to accept others from an early age. Not only will children become morally strong, but in the future, they will have an economic advantage when they respect others from around the world. Bearing in mind, tolerance is essential to the achievement of peace fundamentally. Along with outright injustice and violence, discrimination and marginalization are common forms of intolerance.
What we do
In order to educate our children for tolerance and by focusing on “principles on Tolerance” declared by UNESCO we produce Audiobook for children at the age of 6+. Bearing mind that Education for tolerance should aim at countering influences that lead to fear and exclusion of others and should help children improve capacities for independent judgment, critical thinking, and ethical reasoning. On the day of its fiftieth anniversary, 16 November 1995, UNESCO’s Member States adopted a Declaration of Principles on Tolerance. Among other things, the Declaration affirms that tolerance is neither indulgence nor indifference. It is respect and appreciation of the rich variety of our world’s cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human. Tolerance recognizes the universal human rights and fundamental freedoms of others. People are naturally diverse; only tolerance can ensure the survival of mixed communities in every region of the globe. Intolerance is very often rooted in ignorance and fear: fear of the unknown, of the other, other cultures, nations, religions. By taking worthful consulting from the scientist of such areas, the related stories are written for the children. Considering tolerance culture and peace are taught and learned at an early age, therefore, greater emphasis needs to be placed on educating more and better.
“Building a culture of tolerance, peace and love”
Our children are living and growing up with one of the greatest challenges, societies face today, diversity. In a world where cultures increasingly converge and intermingle with each other, teaching the value and skills of “learning to live together”, has become a priority issue for education. Exchange the culture increase our sense of tolerance and love so by introducing different culture to our children we might increase the chance of peace in the world. Introducing western culture specifically Norwegian one is one of our unique vision.
Our mission is to tap into the brightest children minds of today and tomorrow by empowering them to research how our globe with cultural diversity has been shaped and make them more encourage of reading and studying and decipher how these phenomena translate into the investing dynamics of the stock market. Research supports that the best way to pass traditions and values to children is through sharing folktales. They learn much faster and retain the concepts in their long-term memory in this way. The icing on the cake is ‘learning becomes fun’. It is true that we are all one as human beings. However, along with individual differences, it is these cultural variations that make life beautiful and meaningful. These different hues add the necessary brightness and purpose that motivates the will in individuals to lead a good life. What is important to maintain our levels of well being perhaps is creating as many experiences as possible. To laugh as much as we can, to create memories, cherish them later, meet as many people with diverse background and learn from each other’s culture, to never miss a travel opportunity. We grow when we appreciate diversity and understand the common thread that binds us all one as humans.
Therefore, our mission would be:
- Encourage our children more to read books
- Encourage our children more to speak, to be heard
- Putting more books featuring cultural diversity into the hands of all children.
- Encourage children to take ‛Commonwealth approach’, that is respect and understanding each other. This approach involves a tradition of doing things through dialogue, where everyone has the right to speak, to be heard and to be consulted in coming to a common view.
- Rethink the dividends of cultural diversity, as benefits of a continuous exchange between cultures.
- Promote the principle of learning to live together, the challenging art of unity-in-diversity conducive to lasting conviviality.

Home with different cultures
People from different cultures have different relationships with their children. For example, some cultures require children to be quiet and always respect their elders, while other cultures encourage children to speak up and be independent. If you and your partner are from different cultures, you might have different ideas about child development. It is important for children to practice tolerance. Sometimes children who live in homes where there are two cultures can become confused and stressed. It is important for you to agree on what is right so your children feel they belong to both cultures. This will help them feel better about themselves and learn better. Our books moreover, contribute parents to get involved in children’s learning in such a home.
