Book Aid International

Book Aid International works in partnership with libraries in sub-Saharan Africa providing books, resources and training to support an environment in which reading for pleasure, study and lifelong learning can flourish.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Book Aid International increases access to books and supports literacy, education and development in sub-Saharan Africa. The charity provided 516,138 new books to over 2,000 libraries last year alone and have sent more than 30 million books to partner libraries since 1954.

Books and libraries are a crucial resource in sub-Saharan Africa. They are vital for quality education; they raise literacy levels, provide information and underpin development. These books change lives.

“Without the books we receive from Book Aid International many of these children will not see or read a book in their childhood.”
Jeanne Atsam, Dan and Sarah Orphanage

I'll be running the London Marathon to raise £2,000 for Book Aid International. Please help me reach this goal!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
