We believe it is our duty to empower one another, to unlock our potential to improve the lives of all. Our ability to achieve should not be defined by where we were born or what resources we were fortunate enough to have around us. We work to “re-define” this by collaborating with a network of partners around the world to achieve our goal of improving literacy wherever we see that access and opportunity are limited.
For every book you buy, we donate a book Every time you buy a book at awesomebooks.com we will donate a book to someone who needs it. Almost 400,000 children in the UK do not own a book. The proportion of children without books is increasing -now one in three, compared with one in ten in 2005. Children with their own books are more likely to be above-average readers and do better at school. Children without books are more likely to live in poverty.
Going global Our commitment to literacy doesn't stop at home. We work with multiple international organisations to reach every corner of the world where books are needed.
