Pelmo Books is a publishing company based in Pretoria with a mission to preserve indigenous South African languages by encouraging the youth to read and write books that reflect on South African indigenous cultures. They want to ensure that that our indigenous languages do not fade away by writing, translating and publishing books that are written in our languages. By publishing books in these languages, they are encouraging people to read, write and speak their mother tongue languages, even more, to want to write books in their languages. With so many languages in one country, comes many cultures as well, authors have a variety of topics to write about and can express themselves greatly.
Their main focus has been in education, supplying public libraries, school libraries as well as school books through the Department of Education. They broadened the focus into the trade space where they publish books for general read and interest.
