Mission Statement

Books change lives. They crackle with ideas and help shape people's imaginations, critical thinking skills, and their understanding of the world and the many opportunities within it. Books for Asia puts one million brand-new books into the hands of students, educators, and local and national leaders in 18 countries annually. We empower future and current leaders with information because we know that an educated population is better equipped to fight poverty, disease, injustice, and instability.

Description

A program of The Asia Foundation, Books for Asia donates approximately 1 million brand-new books to thousands of ill-equipped schools, libraries, and other educational institutions in Asia each year. Each of our 18 country programs -- from Afghanistan to Vietnam -- combats educational disadvantages faced by the poor, minorities, and women of the region.
