Mission Statement

Our mission is to teach children about ancient African empires and their important contribution to present day civilisation through a blend of fun, fact and fiction.


One of the mediums for doing this is our children’s adventure book series, “The Adventures of Obi and Titi”, where our characters meet heroes and heroines of Africa’s untold past and visit magical empires they could only have dreamed of.
