Books For Africa

Books for Africa is the largest shipper of donated text and library books to the African continent, shipping over 23 million books to 45 African countries since 1988. On October 4, 2011, Kent Chao published an evaluation of Books for Africa with a "HOLD" rating.

NPI Rating: HOLD

As the largest shipper of donated books to the African continent, BFA enjoys scale benefits of distribution. However, material inconsistencies in key metrics such as cost per book shipped and shipping cost per book diminish the credibility of reported information. Project-specific donations may be the best way to donate and track results.
