The story of Princess Gie Gie and her long daily trek for water is based on high-fashion model Georgie Badiel’s childhood experience growing up in Burkina Faso. After hearing the story and looking closely at a Makonde water vessel, a finely-decorated clay vessel from Mozambique, children will head to the studio to make clay pinch pots. Proceeds from the sale of this book support the work of the Georgie Badiel Foundation, which builds wells in Burkina Faso and other countries in Africa.
