Books for Africa has for mission to end the book famine in Africa, through which the Atlanta warehouse processes, sorts, and ships all of the high-quality books that BFA sends to children and adults in Africa.¬†
Within the last 12 months, BFA has shipped 2.4 million books, 665 computers and 200 e-readers containing 1.6 million digital books, as well as 5 new law and human rights libraries to 21 African countries.¬†
BFA is able to achieve this with donations and the help from volunteers. While books are donated by publishers, schools, libraries, individuals, and organization; the small staffs of BFA depends heavily upon volunteers to sort and pack these precious books for shipment.¬†
Volunteers like you made it possible for BFA to send over a million high-quality and useful books to the children and adults of Africa each year!¬†
It is rather simple, we‚Äôll be sorting and packing books for shipments, but it makes a difference. There is no heavy lifting involved.¬†
BFA is relocating to an even larger location, join us to be among the first volunteers at the new warehouse for a fun and satisfying volunteer experience.
