On YNF Entertainment Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, cultural travel guide and fictional character, Princess Naku™, was created by Weruché Uzoka George to assist future generations in correctly identifying African nations.
A former asylee from Nigeria has written a 57-book educational series all about African nations. Weruché Uzoka George introduces readers to the continent with he r character, Princess Naku. The books are a child-friendly way to teach about the continent’s regions. The Princess Naku™ debuted in November 2021 and is only available in hardcover from Amazon or the author’s website.
After realizing the educational gap about African nations in the United States, the author of the Princess Naku™ series wrote the books in a single year.
Educating Children About Africa
In a National Geographic geography literacy study conducted in 2002, Americans came in last place for their ability to identify African nations. The media outlet says that the results haven’t really changed in 20 years. Weruché aligns her mission with the United Nations’ SDG (goal 4) 2030 focus, promoting opportunities for lifelong learning and inclusive and equitable quality education for all.
“I decided it’s time to educate our children about Africa and its territories,” said Weruché Uzoka George. “It’s a severe injustice that people are unaware that Africa has 54 countries and two disputed territories.”
The books look at all of Africa’s countries and territories. This includes each nation’s rich history, culture, food, and people, as well as its distinctive environments. With Princess Naku™, Children will have an opportunity to explore less traveled regions like S.T.P., Mali, Eritrea, Uganda, and many more. The Princess Naku™ series adheres to the ethos and values of the WIIN organization (Weruché Inspires International).
