The joy of reading

Every donation is important to us, it doesn’t matter how small. We also appreciate that giving just an unspecified amount of money isn’t always what everybody wants to do either. That’s why there are a number of ways you can contribute financially to our cause – take a look at the options below and see if you can find a way that would appeal to you.

Why we need funding

The reason we send books to Africa rather than sourcing them at the point of use, is because sorting and sending books from the UK is the most cost effective method of getting school books to children in Africa.

Our administration and management costs are so low; our volunteers are so dedicated; and our sponsors so enormously generous that we can provide a bookshelf of books right up to the stocking of a library, all at the fraction of the cost of doing the same in Africa. It’s therefore the best option economically to resource libraries in Africa from the UK, and it’s for this cost that we are asking for your help.
