Bookfriends International is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that helps in educating children in Africa by providing books, supporting educational materials and services. Bookfriends is entirely run by volunteers.
Bookfriends has an ongoing need for monetary donations. Shipping in cargo load quantities is expensive. It takes generous funding to arrange shipping from Chicago all the way to the African villages, schools and libraries.
Most of the foundation’s book donations come from schools and libraries in the Chicago area. It also accepts appropriate, educational book donations from private individuals, used book stores, book clubs and educators.
Bookfriends International was founded on the belief that every child deserves a chance to learn and to develop his or her individual abilities.
