Hello, my name is Michelle Euinton and this is my little social enterprise with a big heart and a bright, promising future. Colour Our Story facilitates the creation of colouring in books and cards, by children for children.
Our vision is to empower and give voice to disadvantaged, vulnerable children locally and worldwide. At the same time, inspiring a future generation of global citizens who understand the importance of caring for and uplifting one another. The children become connected through the power of story and creativity - drawing, writing and colouring across borders. Imaginations are unleashed, stories created and stories shared.
Diversity is celebrated, regardless of each others circumstances or where we call home. Because despite these differences, we are all one – we all grow up with hopes and dreams and are all deserving of bright futures.
In Africa there is a word ‘UBUNTU’ - I am because we are. This concept truly captures the essence of this project.
At Colour Our Story we also urge children to remember ‘The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write, draw, build and dance, play and live only as you can.’ Author Unknown
