About Nonprofit

Education is the great equalizer in the world and books are at the foundation of a strong educational system. Access to an education is one of the only opportunities young people have to end the cycle of poverty and attain a better quality of life than previous generations. We have shipped over 47 million books to 55 different countries on the African continent. In 2019, we also shipped 155 computers and e-readers containing more than 400,000 digital books to 29 African countries. Our books now occupy once-empty shelves and are held in the hands of children who have never held a book before.

Mission Statement

To end the book famine in Africa by collecting, sorting, shipping and distributing books to African students of all ages and to help create a culture of literacy and provide the tools of empowerment to the next generation of parents, teachers and leaders in Africa.
