Basic Overview

A 40-foot container of books being loaded in the BFA warehouse.

Books For Africa partners with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Africa to ship sea containers of about 22,000 donated books. Books For Africa provides the donated books, and the recipient organization in Africa or their financial supporters worldwide pay the shipping costs and distribute the books.

Books For Africa ships only high-quality books that are relevant to African students. We provide mostly donated text and library books, and we also make a special effort to include in every shipment reference materials such as encyclopedia sets, atlases, and dictionaries. We offer computers as well.

Books For Africa will load a container of books to your specifications. You can choose the books according to age level (primary junior, primary senior, secondary, or post-secondary) and category (such as math, reading, and general library books).
