The Book Bus Adopt a Book Bus campaign

Adopt a Book Bus

Adopt a Book Bus is a great way to help the Book Bus share essential and engaging books ​with​ children and communities in Africa and South America.

Since 2006 the Book Bus has brought the joy of reading to more then 100,000 children in Ecuador, Malawi & Zambia.

Our mobile Book Buses are at the heart of what we do, they bring much needed support to schools and libraries where books are scarce. By adopting a Book Bus you’ll help guarantee the future of our Book Buses and introduce a new generation of children to the wonders of reading.
