Help us raise money!
We are urgently in need of funds to ensure that we can continue to support libraries overseas. You could do anything from climbing a mountain to holding a second hand book sale. Find our more about how you can help us to continue providing over half a million books each year or get in touch for advice.
If you are interested in joining our team of volunteers but can’t see the perfect opportunity for you here, please email your CV to us and we will get in touch.
Please note that we are unable to send volunteers to work overseas.
