We launch the Water Princess Well and built ten toilets at a primary school in Reo with the help of Ryan’s well.

In less than 1 year, we restored 13 wells, built 2 new ones, and 10 new sanitation systems.

In total, we provided access to clean drinking water to over 75,000 people

The Georgie Badiel Foundation is more than just building and restoring wells.

We empower the people we work with by teaching them how to take care of their wells,

By showing them how to restore them.

The Georgie Badiel Foundation has a mission to maintain every wells we build or restore for five years. We encourage  the community to save up every month a certain amount of money they can afford in order to be able to take care of their well after the five years.

We  work with the Chief of the village in order to accomplish our mission.

We empower women to let their young girls go to school, we inspire them through our own stories.


You turn on the tap, and clean portable water comes gushing out. However, this is not the reality for many people living in Burkina Faso and Africa. Specially young girls, children and pregnant women. Every day, they have to wake up before the sunrise to go fetch water. Some of them walk 3 hours to more. Just like Georgie did. You can become the hero of those kids by bringing the most basic human right to their village or school. 

You can help by donating to the Georgie Badiel Foundation now. For a school fundraising, your birthdays, anniversaries or any special occasions. We're grateful to you.



For $10,000 or more, you can full fund a water project for a village or a school or an hospital.

Children are the ones who suffer the most from thirst. You could be their hero."

Georgie Badiel is from Burkina Faso. She was named Miss Burkina Faso 2002/2003 and Miss Africa 2004. She is the co-author of The Water Princess and has always been a true citizen of the world. As a model she loves working in fashion; as an activist, the Georgie Badiel Foundation is her passion. As a small and focused charity, the Foundation is dedicated to helping the people of Burkina Faso and Africa to gain access to clean water and sanitation.

The Georgie Badiel Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable organization 501-c(3) that provides access to clean drinking water in Burkina Faso and Africa. The organization also builds sanitation facilities and plants trees.

Burkina Faso is a land of beauty and deprivation. Landlocked in West Africa, this desperately poor nation has more than 17 million people. Water and sanitation are a luxury to most: The British trust WaterAid estimates that at least 6,000 children under five die each year from the lack of these basic necessities.

The Georgie Badiel Foundation has a simple but clear goal: to provide access to clean water and sanitation services in the founder’s country Burkina Faso and Africa.




As a young girl, Georgie Badiel used to walk for miles with her grand mother and cousins to get water in the village of Koffi Kro. After working in the modeling industry for so many years, she went back home to visit her sister who was nine month pregnant. Her had to wake up every morning  between 2 AM  and 4 AM to get water. This broke up Georgie’s heart and from that day on she decided to make a change.

The Water princess is based on my childhood story and you can buy now.
