Books For Africa 30th Anniversary Celebration in Cape Town, South Africa

Books For Africa is planning a trip to Cape Town in January of 2018 to celebrate 30 years of working to end the book famine in Africa.  Running January 15-21, the trip will include a climb of Table Mountain, tours of Cape Town and visits to recipient BFA schools.  

Cost of travel package is $1,560 per person (sharing a twin or double), payable to Borton Overseas. Each person is responsible for their own airfare (you may ask Jody Schuster at Borton for advice). Each person is responsible for a $1,000 fundraising donation in order to sponsor 2,000 books to South Africa, remitted to Books For Africa prior to the trip. The BFA office is ready to help you set up your fundraising page and appeal to your contacts to sponsor books to South Africa.

If you are interested in joining us, or would like additional details regarding the trip, please visit the information page, or contact our office.
