Book Reach has created over 30 libraries
and delivered more than 70,000 books
to schools in Nepal and East Malaysia

Old Books Give New Life

Since 2013, Book Reach has delivered 70,000 books to 24 primary and secondary schools in the Makwanpur District of southern Nepal – bringing the joy of reading into nearly 25,000 children’s lives.

In 2018, we expanded our coverage to include seven primary schools in the East Malaysian state of Sabah.

Working in close partnership with school principals and local education officials, our charity delivers reading books donated by 12 international schools in Singapore and Malaysia.

We also support a comprehensive programme of library provision and furnishing, supplemented by highly respected training workshops for school and student librarians.

The Project

Book Reach relies entirely on private donations, which are used to ensure the safe and timely delivery of books to our beneficiary schools.
