Our Mission

Our Mission

At Gusto & Gecko, we help build children’s awareness and empathy for cultures around the world through quirky storytelling.

Our narrative-drive stories expose kids to cool places they don’t encounter in traditional children’s books and help tackle declining geography literacy. Even the United Nations has recognised “global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity” as one of its education Sustainable Development Goals. So if you believe being curious about the world is important, then please check out our work!
