Humanitarian projects

Cuento de Luz believes that stories can change or plant a glimmer of hope in the lives of children who need our help to develop and survive, children living very different realities in conflict or famine. Some of our stories are intended for small foundations, led by enterprising and courageous people, who invest all of their contributions to school projects, nutrition, environmental conservation or help promote peace.
