A simple name for an organization with a simple mission. We collect, sort, ship, and distribute books to students of all ages in Africa. Our goal: to end the book famine in Africa. Books for Africa remains the largest shipper of donated text and library books to the African continent, shipping over 39 million books to 49 different countries since 1988. Over the past 12 months we have shipped three million books, 93 computers and e-readers containing 223,000 digital books, as well as 10 new law and human rights libraries to 18 African countries. More than $2.5 million was raised last year to ship the books to the students of Africa. Volunteers will help to sort and package books for shipment.
