Botswana Book Project proudly serves as a catalyst for literacy, education, youth empowerment, and library development throughout Botswana through the free donation of appropriate reading and resource books (new and gently used), literacy and education materials, and trainings. In the past five years, Botswana Book Project has distributed books and literacy materials, computers, and study solar lights, as well as masks, printers, sanitizer, soap, chairs, and bookshelves.

Botswana Book Project operates solely via volunteers and donations and has had the privilege to work with the Government of Botswana and NGOs in donating to pre-primary, primary, junior secondary, and senior secondary schools; clinics, and other education and youth-based institutions throughout the whole of Botswana.
