WHO WE ARE
Books with a local focus, global appeal
Toreva is a non-profit press that produces engaging storybooks that represent a diversity of African cultures, languages and peoples. Starting with Zimbabwe, we are creating books that allow black children to see themselves reflected in the books they read. Although our books are country-specific, we believe that the themes they touch on are ones that any child around the world can relate to. It’s for that reason that our books work for a global audience. As engaging as our books are, they are also excellent teaching tools that we are using to transform the Zimbabwean education system.
