We know that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected us all. So we are changing our book policy for the next few months and inviting all interested organisations, who are currently working directly with young people, to apply for a FunDza book donation.

The books can be used in any way that will get young people reading – perhaps they could be distributed via a feeding scheme, or perhaps your organisation is able to provide a book swapping service.

We will be giving away books and pocket booklets that are ideal for young people to read on their own in their homes. Our books are aimed at 13-21-year-olds.

If your organisation is reaching this age group, and you would like to promote reading, apply for a special Covid-19 book distribution by completing the application form here.

Applications for the first distribution have closed. Applications for the second distribution close on 30 September and will be considered in October.
