Donate your books and educational resources in 3 easy steps

Step 1

Package your books and resources into cardboard boxes and go online to arrange a collection from your address or schedule a date to drop-off at our Processing Centre in Canterbury. Write your booking reference number on all your boxes.

Step 2

At our Processing Centre, our team check and scan your items into our database. We also label some of your books with an impact sticker showing your booking reference number before shipping them to a project or distribution office in Africa.

Step 3

When your books arrive in Africa, they are distributed to students and teachers in need. Students or teachers who receive any of your labelled items would send us a photo for you. We also publish detailed impact reports on our website.
