Puo Products

Every 14 days a language dies, taking with it a wealth of knowledge about history, culture, and the natural environment.  Passing on a language to children is challenging without materials available in that language.

Puo Educational Products ( Puo) is addressing this issue by creating relevant content that educates, entertains and empowers children through Africa’s heritage.  Our aim is to inspire children whilst developing a culture of reading.

Approved by the Department of Education, our materials and the benefits thereof reach children through parents, teachers and Corporate Social Investment projects. Browse our website to find out more or contact us on info@puo.co.za

Community School Projects

Community engagement83% of South African children have no form of reading materials published in their home language. The lack of relevant reading materials affects children’s sense of self confidence and their love of reading – which in turn has an impact on literacy rates. Puo is working with Corporate projects, NGOs and schools to turn this situation around by delivering African language materials and training to communities in South Africa.
