About Books2Africa

Books2Africa was founded in 2012 as a student society by four African students at the University of Kent. The organisation became a UK registered charity in 2013 and now also has Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

Books2Africa’s UK Processing Centre is still open during the lockdown and we are still accepting donated items and shipping to Africa. You can still donate or request resources as usual. We’ve also launched our Personal Study Kit to help with home schooling across Africa.
