How can I help?

There are several ways in which you can help the Books for Africa project

Bring and buy bookstalls at regional conferences

If you attend a UKLA conference, you will find a Project Connect Books for Africa bring and buy bookstall. Please bring along a book donation and buy something from the stall. We are looking for donations of novels, up-to date professional books on literacy and literacy teaching and good quality children’s books to sell on these stalls.

UKLA Project Connect gift card

The proceeds of these cards all go to Project Connect. Cards cost £11 each (£10 donation + £1 for card and envelope). Gift cards are on sale at UKLA conferences or from the UKLA office.

School Fundraising

Sponsored ‘Keep fit’ sessions, lunch time school discos, wet sponge throwing contests and big breakfasts (involving parents and grandparents) have all been successful in raising funds for Project Connect.

Fundraising in HE

After a short presentation about Project Connect, a one-off ‘chuck it in a bucket’ event at the end of a lecture can be surprisingly productive. With ‘one Christmas card for everyone’, all staff pin one card to a board and give the money saved to Project Connect.

Making a donation
