Thank you for your donation. It means a lot to us that you took your time to make a financial contribution to Books2Africa. 

Putting a book in the hands of a child in Africa puts a smile on their face, knowledge in their mind and hope of a brighter future in their soul. It’s the least expensive but most important gift you could ever give. 

Your donation helps us cover the cost of processing, shipping and distributing books and educational resources to students and teachers in need across Africa. Without any government funding, we rely on the generosity of people like you to build a network of donors whose contributions enable us to ship 1 million books every year. 

We’ll keep you updated via email on the impact of your donation. Please contact me if you need any information. Until then, thanks again for your support.

Many thanks,
