About Equipe

Founded in 1998, by Tony and Maraget Howson, Equipe started by working in East Africa, and now works in India, Papua New Guinea and The Philippines, as well as continuing to work in Kenya, Tanzania & Uganda.

Equipe is different to other charities, in that very little of it's fund raising costs go on anything but the projects that it serves. The United Kingdom offers a Gift Aid option for all UK tax payers, and administration costs, advertising, staff and building expenses come from this and donations made for these purposes.

This means that all profits, after the book sellers take off their fees, will go directly to where it is needed most. No one project has been picked over another, and will be divided as necessary between them all.

Review by: Elizabeth York on June 02, 2012 :
Found 'Looking for Little Nandi' particularly delightful. The illustrations of the elements facing the children on their rescue mission through the night really captured the emotions of the characters - I found the image of the 'monsters' in the clouds wonderfully disturbing and the image of little Nandi fast asleep beautifully humourous. As this story is also such a joy to read aloud I can easily see it becoming a favourite in our household.

Like the first volume in its series of three, and its parent book project (“A Cuppa and an Armchair”), “Cookies and Milk, Volume 2” – a lovingly put together pair of children’s tales – is a collaborative work joining authors, illustrators, and the charity Equipe in a twofold mission: To relieve the suffering and poverty-stricken around the world, and to share engaging stories with readers everywhere

Andrew Robson's "Looking for Little Nandi" brings forth the hope and courage that only children seem to possess. The illustrations capture the emotions of the story as the children embark into a stormy night to find Nandi who is missing. Perfectly matched writing and illustrations make this a story to read around the campfire this summer, or at bedtime with the brave children in your life!

Christine Cunningham's "Fluffy" was a delight, especially for all of us who would love to come across a magical pet in an obscure pet store! I only wish it would have gone on a little longer! Danielle Shipley's illustrations carry us through the story, making you feel like you were actually there! A cute story that will delight young dreamers everywhere!

Review by: Danielle Shipley on May 25, 2012 :
Like the first volume in its series of three, and its parent book project (“A Cuppa and an Armchair”), “Cookies and Milk, Volume 2” – a lovingly put together pair of children’s tales – is a collaborative work joining authors, illustrators, and the charity Equipe in a twofold mission: To relieve the suffering and poverty-stricken around the world, and to share engaging stories with readers everywhere.

A dream birthday present grows into a big surprise for Louan and her friend Jacob in “Fluffy” by Christine Cunningham (author of Amazon bestseller “Eternal Beginning”). The flight of fancy’s colorful characters are brightly visualized by young-adult fantasy author Danielle Shipley’s illustration debut.

With the breathless excitement of a campfire tale and a hint of rhyme woven in to tickle the ear, Andrew Robson writes of Sipho and Johnny, two little boys who brave a storm to find a missing girl before anyone (or anything) else can find her first. The life and movement of “Looking For Little Nandi”s words are well matched by the multimedia drawings of Eric White (author of “I Love You Each, All, and Every Way!” in “Cookies and Milk, Volume 1”).

The cause is a great one, the price is right, and the potential for joy-filled storytime is unlimited. So for those who have brave little dreamers in their lives, cuddle up with them and “Cookies and Milk, Volume 2”!
