School textbooks


Textbooks are the tools that build an education.

A lack of books means that many children in rural Africa are unable to engage with their lessons or even learn to read. But the right book can inspire a child, and help them get the most from their education.

Your gift could provide ten curriculum-based textbooks for children desperate to learn. They will be better able to understand their subject, revise for exams and finish primary school.

How it works

Each alternative gift includes a beautiful postcard recognising the contribution made in the recipient's name. It describes how the gift will support education in the communities we work with.

  • Choose an alternative gift
  • If you'd like your gift sent directly to a friend: add a personal message in the box below (to be handwritten on your behalf), then tell us their address on the next page
  • Or, we can deliver a blank card straight to you, so you can add your own greeting

All of our gifts represent aspects of real long-term projects in rural Africa. As the need for funding and support can change within each community we partner with, your gift will be used wherever it is needed most.
