Bookfriends International NFP: Providing Opportunity, Education and Brighter Futures
Bookfriends International is a not-for-profit, non-denominational organization whose sole purpose is to provide opportunity, education and more promising futures for secondary school age children throughout Africa.
We believe education is key to developing young minds. Our goal is to provide textbooks and library books to local villages to fill eager students’ hands and empty library shelves.
Donated books come from middle schools, high schools, libraries, individuals, book drives and book publishing companies. By passing on these new and used books, we can promote global learning.
Time and time again, we have seen the positive effects these books have had on the children in numerous East African villages. Books that are often discarded or sold for pennies on the dollar here in the states, become treasures in the hands of those seeking knowledge and new skills in Third World countries.
Education provides real change and empowerment.
