Mission Statement

Books for Peace collects donated materials and ships them to schools, universities, and libraries in countries where there is enormous need for English-language materials and no money to buy them. With heavy use of e-mail, individual Peace Corps Volunteers serve as our intermediaries: they initiate contact with us and then work with their host-country colleagues to ensure the appropriateness and effective deployment of our shipments.

Description

Books for Peace receives offers of in-kind donations through a network of referrals and collects those materials which have good prospects of being wanted by educators or librarians in the countries to which we ship. At our warehouse, a wide variety of materials is organized by categories. When a load of shipments has been assembled, it is taken to the shipping company, which sends a cargo container to the receiving country about once a week. The shipping company provides clearance through Customs and delivery to the receiving party.
