LitJoys is an early learning venture, which aims to nurture little children to become more aware, considerate and responsible human beings.
The experiential learning products and workshops designed by LitJoys, bring children closer to nature and help in building habits and values in children that protect their health and environment and address some of the key societal issues. They also take children away from modern day distractions of “toxic childhood”- addiction to screens, plastic toys, junk food and lack of parental involvement.
By making children READ.EXPERIENCE.CREATE real life stories based on a real-life character (Abdu) they can associate with or record their other real life experiences in a fun and innovative way, the products intend to have a long lasting impact on them.
The learning content is designed in a way that parents can also learn something new and experience many little moments of joy (LitJoys), learning and unlearning together with their little children.
Ekta Ohri, the Founder of LitJoys, has a background in architecture, anthropology (Northwestern University) and visual and critical studies (California College of the Arts). She has several years of experience designing products, services, spaces and systems, to address business and social innovation challenges of multilateral, bilateral, non profit and corporate organisations worldwide.

More importantly, she is a mother of a 4.5 year old and has been passionately reading to her son since he was 3 months old. She has been engaging him at home without any gadgets or other screens and raising him to become a nature lover and a responsible and considerate child!
