The Change We Seek®

Social engagement is a fundamental part of the Cuento de Luz DNA. With a strong emphasis on promoting universal values such as respecting differences, promoting peace, contributing to the environment, Cuento de Luz has supported a number of NGOs. In some cases a title has been translated to the local language (e.g. Swahili, Dari) where the NGO is operating, and Cuento de Luz has donated a printed version to be distributed in those countries. Almost all titles aim to contribute in some way in disseminating values that help to make the world a better place.

What makes us a better company?
