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.
