Step-up your skills with our Digital Study Kit

At Books2Africa, we believe hard copy books and computers complement each other to provide a holistic learning experience. During the COVID-19 lockdown, we launched Books2Africa’s Digital Study Kit – a package containing a refurbished laptop (Windows 10) which comes with a Windows 10 licence and pre-installed productivity apps, a solar reading light and access to premium online learning resources. The kit can be requested by individuals who are students or staff of an academic institution or registered NGO in any African country. Beneficiaries are required to fund the cost of processing, shipping, clearing, and delivering their kit.

Fundraise to pay shipping and clearing costs

Raise funds to pay for the shipping and clearing fees of your kit from the UK to your address in Africa via DHL. A total of £150 will be required for processing and shipping and you are responsible for clearing charges at destination, or a total of £200 inclusive of clearing and delivery to your door.

Submit Impact Photos, Videos and Report

Your kit is dispatched and delivered within 3-5 days. After receiving your kit, beneficiaries are required to send us photos and videos, as well as complete our Impact Report survey to provide feedback on the materials received. These are published on our website and shared with supporters.
