Valiant scribe is at the nexus of faith and social issues. Independent of each other and complementary of the other. It seeks to shine a light on issues ranging from violence against women, human trafficking, education to climate change, poverty and migration.

It is an initiative trying to raise awareness for human rights around the world in simple digestible works of art and literature that can appeal to all.

This attempt is accomplished through publications, collaborations with social justice organizations, and ad-hoc projects.
