Maintaining a clear focus on our role in the book value chain allows us to scale effectively.
Book Dash develops and harnesses partnerships with over 200 organisations across South Africa to get our books to children and parents through their meaningful work on the ground.
We work with literacy organisations, early childhood development initiatives, healthcare-based programmes and more.

“Partnership with Book Dash in bringing quality education to our local community. Our support of the eighteen creches is strengthened by this collaboration aimed at bringing books into children’s homes to cultivate a culture of reading.”Thobani Ndlovu,
“We are grateful to Book Dash for strengthening our programme objectives with their generous donation of books. Book Dash promotes literature in all South African Languages, and their mandate is to make sure that each child owns at least 100 books by the age of five.”The Seriti Institute
We are truly honoured to be recipients of the stunning BookDash books. We love the unique and valuable family-moments that have been created!

“The creche organisations are almost never in a position to buy reading materials for their children and if they are, they would normally only buy one teacher copy which the children might not even touch. To be able to give out these books is such an essential part of the child’s educational development and we are so grateful to be involved in the distribution.”Alison Zikala,
Green Sparks Education
“Book Dash is the only organisation we know who actually allow the children to own the books rather than donating to the creches. This is very important for the children as they see that the investment is in them directly, not just their creche.”Alison Zikala,
Green Sparks Education
“Shhhh! is at the perfect level for the little ones I see: There is a dog that barks, a phone that rings, a truck that brmmms, a ball that bounces! It’s helping me both with children learning language and increasing vocabulary, but also with my non-verbal AAC users (augmentative and alternative communicators) who are non verbal but are using pictures to communicate: I can match their own picture of a ball to the ball in the story…Excellent language stimulation opportunities all round!”Jamie Sareli,

Our vision of every child owning one hundred books by the age of five is based on research that proves the positive impact that owning books has on a child’s all-round development and future prospects.
Rather than providing once-off book donations, or donations to libraries, Book Dash seeks long-term distribution partners who can work with us to promote book-ownership from a very young age, so that children can build libraries in their homes.
