Our work is only possible because of our dedicated and talented team of staff, volunteers and friends and the hard work of our partners.
We employ a team of 31 dedicated staff, including two programme team members who are based in Nairobi.
We are governed by our Board of Trustees, all of whom bring the skills and experience to help us thrive.
Our Royal Patron, Vice Patron and celebrity friends help us advocate for the book, raise our profile and reach new book lovers.
Our International Advisory Board provides insights and guidance to support our strategic development, programmatic activities and operational effectiveness.
Our vision is a world where everyone has access to books that will enrich, improve and change their lives.
We work with partners to make sure books that will have the biggest impact go where they are needed most.
We provide books for all ages and reading abilities – and we’ve funded the purchase of 136,725 local books since 2017.
