The Book Bus spreads the essential life skill of literacy in developing countries such as Zambia, Malawi, and Ecuador.

More about The Book Bus Foundation

One in six people in the world have reached adulthood unable to read and write, due mainly to a lack of books and the opportunity to read. Publisher Tom Maschler founded the Book Bus in 2008 to address this issue, with the aim of making books accessible to children so more can read and in turn be able to have a wider range of choices in their lives.

Reading is a simple pleasure to most of us in the western world, but it is an essential life skill, crucial to children's academic and social development. Despite the importance of literacy, a lack of resources means there are very few reading opportunities in developing countries. Your old car donation could help The Book Bus to continue its vital work - delivering books to schools and setting up reading schemes where they are needed most. Current schemes in Zambia, Malawi and Ecuador have given 100,000 children the opportunity to read books that are relevant and accessible.

With your help the future will see The Book Bus open more libraries for local communities, invest in the charity's magnificent Book Bus fleet, and provide more books and classroom resources for children across Africa, Asia and South America.
