WHERE THE NAME BEGAN
It began in South Africa. When Founder, Savannah Pratt, was visiting a Zulu village nestled in the Valley of a Thousand Hills in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. She began approaching a group of children sitting on a porch outside their school room. This little girl pictured to the left began yelling with all her might, "Gibela...Gibeeellllaa!"
Savannah sought to learn the meaning behind this powerful word from her local guide, Kenny Takalo. This little girl was telling us, "Climb up... Climb up!" in her native isiZulu language.
Savannah couldn't help but wonder, what if we all shouted "Climb up" with that same passion.
Thus, Savannah Pratt began developing a business idea to tell stories that inspire others to climb up, to lend a hand, to chase their dreams and to fight the good fight.
