The central idea behind this project is the preservation of African Folklore by giving it back to its original audience in a format they can relate to today by implementing contemporary Afrikan illustration styles and through digital media.

Paivepo dzefunde is a chiShona phrase that will take any Shona child back in memory to a time of sitting around a fire or on Grandma's knee and hearing amazing folklore stories of their culture.
