Our distribution partners
We provide books to over 150 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:
