OUR GOALS: 

Growing up in Africa, Georgie Badiel never read books or watched cartoons containing characters that looked like her or related to her everyday life. Princess GieGie Publishing hopes to close this gap, but we need your support to bring this company to life. 

Our goals are to:

  • Help young people develop an understanding of the world around them through authentic storytelling.
  • Publish educational and fun children’s picture books.
  • Teach children how to explore, appreciate, and respect others’ traditions, religions and values. 
  • Develop relationships with libraries, schools and bookstores.
  •  Encourage people to take action globally and in their community.

OUR COMMITMENT

We’re committed to bringing our readers passionate, heartwarming, and inspiring stories from Africa. Through these extraordinary narratives, we also hope to advocate for the villages in Burkina Faso who do not have access to clean water. We are committed to bringing drinking water to these communities in need, but we cannot achieve our goals without your support. When you buy a book for you, your family or your friends, we take 10% of every sale and use it to improve the lives of others. We want to thank you for your support and hope you’ll join us to make a difference in the world.
