Children must own many books for them to flourish!
We are looking for long-term distribution partners (instead of making once-off donations) because we promote book ownership: our vision is that every child should own one hundred books by the age of five. Our vision is based on research that proves the positive impact that owning books can make on a child’s prospects. In order to achieve this, we are looking for partner organisations who support our goal of book ownership.
We would like to make ongoing donations to our partners, provided that at least 90% of the books that we donate to any organisation are given to the children to take home and own, and provided that we receive the required feedback and evidence.
Factors that we consider when evaluating applications are:
- the age group of the children you work with (our books are intended for 0 – 5)
- the existing literacy activities in your organisation
- parent-caregiver training or involvement in the programmes you offer
- the reputation of your organisation.
In addition, we will be guided by your ongoing level of engagement and feedback after the first book donation.
So, in order for your organisation to be considered as a distribution partner for Book Dash books, we need some information from you to ensure that our goals align. This is a way for us to identify potential distribution partners with whom we can forge impactful long-term relationships. The fact that you have completed this form is not a guarantee that you will become a distribution partner and receive books. We will inform you if and when we have appropriate books available to donate.
