Better World Books by John Savage: How it works

How it works

Donation Book Boxes

These Book boxes  are available in the Watts and Austen buildings. Learning Centre staff will collect regularly and send to BetterWorld who then sort, pack and send those most needed to students in schools and colleges in East Africa.

Helping Literacy

Betterworld Books work with charities and organisations in the UK and across the world to promote literacy and the pleasure of reading. Just one book can change a life.

Helping the Planet

Never throw a book away. Let's give pre-loved books a new home, keep them out of landfill, conserve resources, and improve global literacy in the process
