Imagine trying to learn to read with only a photocopied textbook. For millions of children worldwide, this is the reality.
Without books, they will find it more difficult to learn to read, succeed in school and reach their full potential. The Pioneer Book Box supports remote and poorly resourced schools around the world, enriching the classrooms of children who would otherwise have little or no access to the books they need.
Each sturdy, lockable box contains around 200 brand new books to support learning and reading for pleasure and a teachers’ manual to help teachers put their new books to use with young readers.
The boxes can be used in classrooms, refugee camps, community centres or any other location where children are hungry to read.
Where we have sent Pioneer Book Boxes
So far, we have provided Pioneer Book Boxes in response to crises across Africa and to schools in dire need. This has included:

Help send the next Pioneer Book Box
We have plans to reach out to more children around the world, offering them Pioneer Book Boxes full of brand new, beautiful books chosen to meet their needs, but we need your support. Every Pioneer Book Box costs £500 and you can help fund the next box.
