About Books Abroad SCIO

Books Abroad is a registered charity, which aspires to support education in developing countries worldwide by redistributing carefully chosen, second hand books.

From its base in Rhynie in Aberdeenshire, Books Abroad collects good quality second hand books donated by schools, colleges, universities and private individuals from across Scotland and some parts of England, and redistributes them to educational establishments around the world in response to specific requests for support.

Over 300 requests for books are received from abroad per year, of which around 20-30 projects are supplied with books. We aim to help anyone in need who asks, from any country in the world, regardless of race or religion. We currently have an output of over 125,000 books per annum. To date, over 3 million books have been dispatched worldwide. The charity's target is to send parcels to each institution once every 3 years.
