Books2Africa’s UK Processing Centre is still open during the lockdown and we are still accepting donated items and shipping to Africa. You can still donate or request resources as usual. We’ve also launched our Personal Study Kit to help with home schooling across Africa.
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
2,000 individuals giving £10 or more monthly, or 50 corporate partners sponsoring 1 container per year. Thank you.
