Apply for Book Dash books!
"Every child should own one hundred books by the age of five."

When we get funding to print our beautiful, African children's books, we match the books that we print with partner organisations who will use these books to promote book ownership and a love of reading across South Africa. Sign up here to be considered for a book donation. All partners also have access to subsidized book costs.

Please note that Book Dash's vision is book ownership. Donations of books should be given directly to children (or parents) to take home and keep. We cannot supply books for classroom libraries or program use.

Our books are created specifically as read aloud books for the birth to five age group. As a result, organisations working with children under the age of five will be prioritised.

Please fill in the form as best you can. If you have any problems, you can email

Filling in this form is not a guarantee of a book donation. Also note that for reasons of shipping and delivery costs, Book Dash can only accommodate organisations based in South Africa at the moment. If you are based outside of South Africa, but have a physical address that we can deliver to here, and you can arrange transport for the books from there, please indicate that South African physical address in the form.
