£650raised of £750 target by 28 supporters

Weʼre raising £750 to publish a bilingual illustrated children's book about Cuba entitled "I live in Havana/Yo vivo en La Habana."

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Little is known about the life of children growing up in Cuba today. This beautifully illustrated book is the story of a little girl called Yadira (age 8) who lives in Havana and tells us about her daily life and activities. Written in both Spanish and English, it is ideal for families interested in visiting Cuba, children curious about life in other countries and for children of Cuban families living abroad. We are working together with the Music Fund for Cuba (a UK registered charity) to ensure than £1 from each sale of this book goes to support children studying at conservatories in Cuba. So if you take the time to read the book, you will become closer to Cuba's children on many levels. Supporters making a donation of £10 or more can receive a complimentary signed first edition!

    I have just seen the galleys....we're almost there! A production team based in the Philippines is busy working with me. This is truly an international effort! Last night Yosvani and I were delighted to see Cuban tales showcased at Saddlers Wells Theatre in London. Thank you all for your donations which are supporting the next generation of Cuban artists....Viva la revolucion!
