Our volunteers, sponsors, partners, and the children we make books for give us much to celebrate.

Get books to children this Mandela Day!

Forgot to plan something epic for Mandela Day? Need something impressive and meaningful to tell your friends? Book Dash has you covered! Every R10 donation we receive between the 17th and 19th July, will become a beautiful, new book that we’ll give directly to a child. So whether it’s R67, R6700 or anything in between, donate whatever you can today, knowing that every cent will mean more books directly into the hands of children!

Read the books we’ll donate, here:
