Why we do what we do

Our Story

Papinee began with a mother who wanted to give her son the world.

Unfortunately her ill health restricted her ability to travel and so she converted their living room into the Pyramids of Giza, the Savanna’s of Kenya, Mount Fuji, the Taj Mahal and would take him to incredible lands with the most fantastical animals through imaginative storytelling and play.

And every Sunday they visited local children’s homes and orphanages where the mother would storytell to the children who needed hope and love most. She created a word that represented that each one was brilliant and incredible and at the end of every storytelling Sunday she would hug and whisper this magical word in their ears,

‘You are my PAPINEE’

Join our community of Storytelling Volunteers & inspire children in need

Papinee strongly believes in giving it forward – we match every purchase of a Storytelling Kit with a donation of a Storytelling Inspire Kit to a child in need.

And we do more than donate a kit, Papinee has its own storytelling system, working with volunteer storytellers worldwide, training them and inspiring them to educate, inspire and empower kids that need hope most. Taking the kids to different lands with animals and stories, playing with them, showing them compassion and giving them the tools to dream about a beautiful future.

We encourage all to volunteer: from families who have purchased their own Papinee Storytelling Kits to educators, corporates, students: we endeavor to help you, help everyone else, through storytelling.

Where ever you are in the world send us your story. Tell us where, with whom and why you want to run a volunteer storytelling event.
