Working for a world where everyone has access to books

I am the Chief Executive of Book Aid International, the UK's leading international book donation and library support charity, and I am passionate about the power of books to enrich, improve and change lives. Every year, we send around one million books to thousands of libraries, schools, hospitals, refugee camps and Universities where people would otherwise have only a few out of date books. My blogs focus on the many ways that books help people improve their own lives and my personal experiences working around the world.
