About Us

"We write and publish wha we love to read and that which makes us proud of who we are" Beatrice Achaleke, founder and Manager

“Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” -Nelson Mandela-

In 2013 an Austrian publisher decided to not publish her second book 7 days before the release and official launch; Beatrice Achaleke founded GloBUNTU Books in response. Since then she has written and published 22 books of her own, 11 of which have been approved by the Gauteng Department of Education for use in schools. 

In 2019 Beatrice opened the doors of GloBUNTU Books to young black authors who have similar difficulties finding publishers for their works. Since then she has successfully coached several adults and 11 kids to write and have their own books published by GloBUNTU Books and the numbers are growing.

GloBUNTU Books is a rapidly growing African owned publishing company that aspires to make a visible contribution in the publishing landscape with a focus on books on African identity and legacy, written for global audiences by Africans in Africa and the diaspora. 

GloBUNTU Books strives to fill the gap in the book industry when it comes to African children books. What we do differently is that, unlike many publishers we coach black kids to write for themselves, their peers and even for adults. This game change comes with lots of advantages and benefits for our young authors and the world of literature as a whole. We are African identity and heritage driven and youth-focused.

Vision:                                  

GloBUNTU Books is a female African owned publishing company that aspires to become the leader in the publishing landscape when it comes to decolonising the minds of the youth, at home and in schools, in Africa and the diaspora with carefully written books and resources by young Africans.

Mission:

  • Bring GloBUNTU Books to households, private and public schools, libraries, youth centres, institutions of learning, training, as well as foundations and companies.
  • Continuously groom black young writers through coaching them to write and have their own books published. 

20/50 Young Authors Commitment

In celebration of her 50th Birthday in 2020, Beatrice Achaleke is challenging herself and GloBUNTU Books to identify and coach 50 potential black young authors to write and have their books published before she turns 51 on 1 March 2021. Your support for this noble challenge is much appreciated.

“I belong to the generation of Africans who grew up in a colonial system of education which taught us everything about other people and little or nothing about ourselves, our African identity, legacy and heritage. I ended up in Europe where I had to go through many life-changing experiences, including becoming a mother myself to become aware of the importance of identity-focused education for myself and my kids. This awareness is the driving force behind GloBUNTU Books, the “Africa for Smart Kids book series and program. My ultimate mission is to make a significant contribution towards decolonising our minds and education for our children who are the elders of tomorrow,” Ms Achaleke founder of GloBUNTU Books. 

The overwhelmingly positive feedback that comes in regularly from our global readers is a testimony that now is the right time for African focused contents in our schools, especially this 2020, the year 17 African countries celebrate 60 years of independence                                                     In our effort to make our books affordable to everyone we take into consideration the different budgets of our target audiences and allow ourselves the flexibility to design and customise our materials to meet their individual needs. Our books are available on-demand, in black and white or coloured print. Some of them have been translated into French. We also translate them into other languages on demand. Let’s put all excuses aside and get started now.

We look forward to the opportunity to formally introduce our books and programs to you and to collectively explore collaboration and partnership possibilities. Please feel invited to reach out to us at any time. May your 2020 be filled with empowering knowledge and wisdom.
