Currently, we have a separate fundraising challenge in place to transport books to Kenya.

Books Abroad have been changing the world – one book at a time, one child at a time – for almost 40 years. Now, we have the opportunity to step up to the challenge of supporting theological education in East Africa.

The Very Reverend Professor Sir Robin Barbour (1921-2014) was one of the most outstanding churchmen of the 20th century, studying and teaching at some of the world’s leading educational institutions. One of these institutions is St Paul’s University in Limuru, Kenya.

On his death, the family of Sir Robin donated his library of more than 2000 religious and ecumenical texts to St Paul’s.

At Books Abroad, we are experts at curating, shipping and distributing educational material to educational establishments in need, from any country in the world, which asks for support. All of our activities collecting donated books, packing shipping containers, arranging international transport, ensuring safe delivery of the books to their final destination are delivered by volunteers.

We need to raise £5000 to transport this incredible teaching and learning resource from Scotland to Kenya. If you can spare the price of a cup of coffee, a donation of £2.50 will pay for one book. Why not organise a coffee morning with friends and ask for a small donation? Every pound helps us to achieve this goal.
