The interactive map below displays all impact reports received since our first shipment in 2013. We expect impact reports to be completed 3 months after books are delivered.

Your books set-off on a voyage across the world, finding their way from your quiet shelves to the curious hands of a student or teacher in Africa where they’ll find new life and their pages will turn once again!
