Nelson Mandela’s quote, “Education is the most powerful tool one can use

to change the world” is what inspired this campaign and is why I decided to

name the main character after him.

I wanted to create a character that each individual in South Africa can relate

to and not limit the book to a specific race or culture. This is why Tata is a little

rainbow creature (again, representing all of the Rainbow Nation, I made him a

little alien that came from space because children are very interested in outer

space nowadays).

50% of the net profit from the book is split equally between the

Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund and the Tshwane Child Welfare Fund.

The remainder of the profit from the book will go towards

converting shipping containers into classrooms and libraries

and setting it up in areas that lack educational facilities.
