Project cost (clearing, haulage and processing fees)

We often receive funding from individuals and donations to cover the cost of processing and shipping donated books from the UK to our offices across Africa. Our partner organisations then have to pay for clearing and haulage fees to make the books available for distribution locally. As such, our partner offices would normally charge a processing fee (maximum of £1) to cover the destination costs and overheads.

Shipping and delivering 1 million books every year
involves the following:

  • 20,000 books fit in 1 x 20ft container
  • 1,000,000 books fit in 50 x 20ft containers
  • 4 x 20ft containers shipped monthly
  • £5,000 to process, ship and clear each container of 20,000 books
  • £20,000 delivers 4 containers monthly
Fundraising Target
  • 2,000 individuals giving £10 or more monthly, or 50 corporate partners sponsoring 1 container per year. Thank you.
