School Aid is a charitable organisation that supports education in Africa by providing good quality materials to meet the diverse needs of disadvantaged children in poor communities. The relationship between Usborne Books at Home and School Aid goes back a number of years, with many Organisers and Leaders having donated books or free book allowances to this wonderful cause. But in 2016, as we celebrate our 35th Birthday, we want to do something even bigger and better...
Our aim for this year is to raise enough money to establish an Usborne library in South Africa. It is proven that British books successfully supplement local resources and help to create the libraries that are so desperately needed, so the target for us all to aim for is £20,000. But how can we hope to raise this money?
Step 1 - We will donate £10 for every new recruit in January 2016.
Step 2 - We will donate a further amount for every new 2016 recruit who achieves any of the Quickstart Programme milestones before 30th April. This will work as follows:
Whether you're embracing your skills as a Mentor or enjoying Passport to Success as a new Organiser, this process will help not just you and your Usborne business, but also the lives of children who so desperately need and deserve an education.
This year, we hope to spread a little bit of 'Usborne magic' even further!

Usborne Books at Home will be driving the fundraising but if you also want to get involved and donate anything from your events or approach customers, we have set up a central Just Giving page where we will be happy to collect your donations throughout the year. Please do share your own School Aid fundraising success stories with us - we'd love to see what you've been doing!
We will be updating you throughout the year with our progress, as well as announcing some other exciting projects that could help us reach our fundraising target even faster.
