Book Aid International 2021 Annual Review

Libraries often lack the funds to buy books for higher-education students, and practising professionals can also not purchase the up to date books they need. Unreliable internet and electricity mean that digital information is often out of reach as well.

In response, in 2021 we provided 60,438 higher education books and 89,069 medical books around the world to support higher-education students and practising professionals in a variety of fields.

In 2021, we worked with 150 partners, providing 1,007,449 books to people in 24 countries. They are available to an estimated 19.3 million people.

Our partners included the:

* Hawassa University in Ethiopia,

* AMREF Health Africa in Kenya,

* the University of Liberia and

* the College of Medicine at the University of Malawi.
