Sorghum United Unveils 'Sorgho Squad' Children's Book Series
Educational Adventure Series Highlights the Global Impact of Sorghum and Millets, Supporting Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security

Sorghum United, an international non-governmental organization dedicated to consumer and producer education, market development, entrepreneurial empowerment, and global food security in the sorghum and millets space, is thrilled to announce the launch of a new children’s book series, The Sorgho Squad.

The series features characters Jowar, Mashilla, and Milo, who are also highlighted in a series of ten posters that underscore the benefits of sorghum in industrial products, healthy diets, and environmental sustainability. These posters were developed in support of the United Nations’ International Year of Millets and are currently on display at the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization offices in Rome, Italy.

“The Sorgho Squad book series is a fun and educational adventure based on the premise of finding solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges,” said Nate Blum, author and CEO of Sorghum United. “These books, the first of which is now available digitally on Amazon, will provide entertainment for children and vital information for parents about the benefits of climate-smart sorghum in food, fuel, and fiber products.”

The first book in the series, Sorgho Squad Chapter One: From the Ruins Comes Jowar, is available digitally on Amazon, with hard copies set to be available for global distribution in mid-August. This book is the first in a planned series of four initial stories introducing the Sorgho Squad characters as they unite to solve hunger, malnutrition, and environmental challenges worldwide. 

A portion of the revenues from the series sales will support Sorghum United’s global efforts to empower farmers and entrepreneurs by creating resilient and prosperous regional value chains.
