Give as a charitable trust

The support we receive from trusts and foundations enables us to have a longer-term impact, monitor our progress and share skills and experience across our network of local partners.

Home Support us Give as a charitable trust

Bring the power of books to people around the world

The trusts and foundations we work with prioritise education, literacy and the value of reading to bring economic and social development to some of the world’s poorest areas. It is this shared vision that makes our partnerships successful.

If you represent a trust or foundation and would like to consider making Book Aid International a beneficiary of a one-off grant or multi-year support, we can provide detailed proposals describing a project’s aims, objectives and expected outcomes, how these align with your charitable objectives and budgets that itemise all project costs.

We also provide detailed progress reports, budget reports, case studies and photographs so you can see exactly how your donation is being used and the impact on the children and adults benefitting from your support.

We are currently fundraising for a number of projects. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more.

Help us reach 10 million young people

By 2030, over a third of the world’s young people will be in Africa, and millions will have no books. Generation Reader is our ambitious new campaign to help 10 million young people unlock their potential through books. Your funding will:

Send 1.5 million books

Create 300 reading spaces

Train 1,500 teachers and librarians

If you prefer to fund something unrelated to young people, we also have a number of other funding options available. Just contact us to discuss your preferences.

Beit Trust

We have received continued support from the Beit Trust since 1981. They are one of our long-term trust supporters and are the major donor supporting our book provision in Southern Africa.

Book Aid International supplies high quality texts across an unmatchable range. They also continue to ensure the regular delivery of over 300,000 books a year to the Beit beneficial countries. We look forward to continuing this partnership, for the benefit of the people of those countries.
