Book Aid for Africa (BAFA) is a UK registered Charity that is making a difference in the educational landscape in Africa and within local communities in the North East of England. At BAFA we believe education should be a right and not just a privilege for the deprived children of Africa, and within local communities.


BAFA is the product of recognising the grave educational plight of Africa and deprived communities in the North East of England, and our willingness to make a difference. At BAFA, we are improving the quality of education, by providing good quality books to under-resourced libraries in parts of Africa and local communities in the North East of England, and by making books and other educational resources available to schools and colleges.


We work with reputable organisations and agencies in Africa and local communities in the North East of England, to identify areas of need and coordinate the distribution of shipments to Africa, as well as distribution within the local communities. We appoint representatives throughout Great Britain who coordinate the collection and packaging of books and other educational resources, for shipment to Africa, and for distribution to communities in the North East that need them.


We also recruit volunteers to work in our main office in Sunderland and raise funds to assist with the shipment of the collected materials.

It is over 10 years this year that we have been making a difference in Africa’s educational landscape. During this period, we have sent over 250,000 educational books to different countries in Africa. These books have been used to equip desolate libraries across all levels of education in Africa, and have made a substantial contribution to the quality of educational provision in different African communities
