Our distribution partners

We provide books to over 166 partner organisations globally – and our distribution partners play an integral role in helping us reach these organisations.

Our distribution partners receive book donations for their own work and networks and distribute the books within their countries both to our partners and to groups that request books locally. Books are always distributed in line with our guidelines.

This model allows organisations to request books that are already in their country, creating a valuable local resource. To request books directly, please contact your local distribution partner using the details below. If a distribution partner for your country is not listed, please fill in our book request form.

Please note this is not a full list of our countries of operation. See where we work.
