Having access to books has a long-lasting effect on children, young people and communities. These School Book Boxes will provide a basic ‚Äòstarter library‚Äô for primary schools shipped to Africa from the UK to provide children aged 5-15 with brand new books to support their education and imaginations.

In many schools in Africa, a few old, tattered copies of curriculum textbooks are all that is available for children to learn from, and few have any other books at all ‚Äì meaning children do not have the opportunity to experience all the educational benefits and wonderful imaginative opportunities that books can bring.
A School Book Box would provide a starter collection of 300 carefully chosen books donated by the UK publishing industry, suitable for schools of up to 500 children. They will be delivered in a wheeled box that can be moved from classroom to classroom, and will include a manual for teachers to provide guidance and inspiration. It will also include educational resources to support early learning and education.
