Connecting Tanzania


Sharing Culture and Literature Around the World

We are committed to publishing children’s literature in the the local Tanzanian language of Swahili that features culturally relevant story lines and themes.  The goal is to foster a culture of literacy in Tanzania and give support to African authors while providing an opportunity to learn about Tanzanian life and culture to children in other parts of the world. By publishing  in both languages Tanzanian children will have access to books in their native language and the required second language and children in English speaking parts of the world will have the opportunity to learn about African culture. Our books are available for purchase on or wholesale pricing for bulk purchases (10 or more copies) by contacting us.

Copies of the books we publish are donated to schools and libraries throughout Tanzania.  All profits from book sales go towards supporting the programs of Connecting Tanzania.
