Timbuktoo Hope is the outreach initiative of Timbuktoo Publishing and hopes to make a difference to the lives of underserved children in a small way…as every bit counts. Children in our writing classes are encouraged to create awareness-driven communication for ecology, animals and other causes.
Starting from the initial Covid months of April to June 2020, proceeds from every Timbuktoo workshop were shared with the following onground organizations distributing food and essentials to unemployed daily wage earners and migrant workers.
Timbuktoo collaborated with children to create storytelling videos from the stories written by them. Their families would share the videos with the children of their domestic staff via mobile phones. The stories were narrated in regional languages such as Kannada, Tamil and Malayalam
