Your questions answered
I am in South Africa and would like to donate books – where do I send them to?
Zingela Ulwazi, Postnet Suite #38, Private Bag 3008, Hoedspruit, 1380
I am outside of South Africa and want to send books – how shall I do this?
Due to the extortionate DUTY charges levied on Not for Profit Organisations in South Africa, PLEASE DO NOT MAIL any books to us, or we will be liable for crippling charges at the post office. OUCH! Rather email us, and we will make another arrangement.
I want to send a book that is not on the wishlist, but I KNOW it will be well received. Is this ok?
Absolutely! If you want to buy it online, please do so via takealot.co.za to avoid those pesky duty charges.
I don’t have time to go through the wishlist or sort through my books – can I send you money and you do the work for me?
With pleasure. Please donate money above and let us know of any special requests that might apply to your donation.
I want to help! What can I do?
We welcome donations and collaborative fund-raisers. Please have a look at the options above or get in touch with us to find out more.
