The power of books in the Book Aid International vision for 2025

A strategy for the future of any charity will ultimately be shaped by decisions about where it can make the greatest impact. _Alison Tweed, Chief Executive of Book Aid International.


Millions of schoolchildren can learn only by sharing a single threadbare textbook and millions of people have never been encouraged to read, or to escape into the pages of a book. Yet books give people power. They transform how people see themselves, and see the world around them-Dr. Alice Prochaska
Chair, Book Aid International

Around the world, millions of people have never seen or held a new book.

Partnership is Goal 3 of Book Aid International:

We will develop dynamic partnerships with organizations that Share our vision of creating more equitable access to books

Book Aid International

Everything we do is driven by the partnership. Our partners tell us what books their communities need and we provide books in response to their requests. They then make those books available to readers and run projects and programmes which support reading and learning.

By supporting our partners and enabling them to do more, we can create sustainable change for the people who need books most. So in this strategy period, we will invest in our partners, helping build their skills to deliver programmes which enable people to read.


We will engage more in-country trainers to deliver our projects and programmes and upskill local teachers and librarians through a ‘train the trainer’ model. Those teachers and librarians can then go on to share their skills with others.

We will also grow and diversify our partner network – establishing new partnerships with NGOs within and beyond the education space. In addition, we will work with local publishers, reading agencies, library associations and other groups which exist to promote the value of reading.


This expanded partner network will help us reach a more diverse range of readers with book collections which will inspire children and all people to read. […]
