Meet the Authors/Illustrators & learn about our vision!

Founded in 2012, inspired from an article in a popular children's magazine and a drawing on a restaurant napkin, Harriet (mom), Akili, and Asha began the Malik and Friends journey.


We envision a world in which everyone has enough food to eat. A world where girls attend school, and babies do not die from preventable diseases. A world that acknowledges and advances our common humanity.


It is our hope that through Malik and FriendsTM there is an increased awareness of ways children and families can partner to solve many of the challenges in the world today.
