Intsikelelo is a nonprofit registered in South Carolina, the home base of Nicholas Grava, who founded this mission dedicated to improve the lives of orphans and other vulnerable children in South Africa. They develop and support community-driven initiatives such as children's homes, after-school programs, and community centres.

      Over 80% of people plan to write a book and more than six million of them have already written a manuscript. Admittedly there are dozens of companies who will take your money and publish your book. How do you get a book publisher to pay you for your book?
