Provide access to education

Break the cycle of poverty



Education is one of the few possibilities for young people to break the cycle of poverty and have chances for a promising future. Children and young people who otherwise would not have access to education can be enabled to go to school by providing books because the costs are considerably reduced or even eliminated.

Why books?

Books are collected, sorted, sent and then distributed to students of all ages in Africa. The books find their place in schools, rural libraries, orphanages, adult literacy programs, community centers, etc.

How does it work?

Everything with the aim of creating a culture of literacy and thus promoting the next generation of parents, teachers and managers in Africa.

Books For Africa is the largest sender of donated text and library books. Since 1988, over 45 million books have been sent to all 55 African countries.
