Books2Africa Distribution Centres in Africa

At the heart of our mission to improve the quality of education in Africa in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 4, is our strategy to increase access to quality educational resources across all academic levels.

Books2Africa’s Distribution Centres in Africa play a crucial role in achieving this by acting as learning and distribution hubs where individuals, institutions and communities can access and read thousands of books across a variety of academic levels free of charge, as well as having the option to acquire any book by contributing a distribution fee of up to £1 per book to fund our distribution centre costs.

How We Work

Individuals can read books for free at our Distribution Centres or contribute a distribution fee of up to £1 per book to acquire any book in stock.

We only provide books for personal use, not for sale

Books2Africa Disttribution Centres do 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 approved institutions, organisations, projects or partners that make the books available directly to end users - students, teachers or readers within their communities.

Read for free or give up to £1 to take any book home

Register on arrival for a free Books2Africa account to read at our Distribution Centres. To take a book away, we require beneficiaries to contribute a distribution fee of up to £1 per book (equivalent in local currency) to help with the overhead costs of our Distribution Centres (warehousing, staff, etc). The fee is not a purchase price as the books are not for sale and are worth much more than £1.

Impact Reporting Duties and Requirements

We require beneficiaries to open a free Books2Africa Account on site using their email address before they are eligible to read or take books away from our distribution centres. We also require you to take an Impact Photo holding one of the books you receive, which is sent to the donor of the book for impact monitoring and reporting!
