Books2Africa Distribution Centres

Books2Africa is a UK registered charity (number 1152599) that is committed to improving the quality of education in Africa. Books2Africa is also in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). Since it was founded in 2012 by 4 Nigerian students during their time studying in the UK, Books2Africa has shipped and distributed more than 2 million books to individuals and organisations across 20 African countries. 

The charity partners with like-minded Non-Governmental Organisations in Africa to operate its Distribution Centres – warehouses where hundreds of thousands of books are stocked and put on display for individuals and organisations to browser, request and receive locally.

A.

Books2Africa does not provide books to be sold or to book sellers/middle men. We are a charity and our aim is to provide books directly to end-users or to institutions, organisations, projects or partners that make the books available directly to end users - students, teachers or readers within their communities.

B.

We require beneficiaries to contribute a Distribution Fee of £1 per book or the equivalent in local currency to help our Distribution Centres with the rising costs of shipping, clearing, haulage, warehousing and overheads incurred. The books are not for sale and are worth much more than £1.

C.

We require beneficiaries to open a free Books2Africa Account using their email address before they are eligible to receive books. We also require you to take an Impact Photo holding one of the books you receive. The photo is sent to our donors for accountability, and you get a free book!
