We have the opportunity and want to help where it is needed and where people currently do not feel safe or do not have the same chances and opportunities as we do. At home and abroad. We do sell books, but fortunately there are a number of organizations that can help on our behalf and we are very happy to support them.
You can also help us with this project! All you have to do is bring to any Oxford Bookshop English books that you will no longer read and therefore they can make someone else happy. We will then hand them over to the project coordinator in the Czech Republic and together with other books they will be sent to children in Africa.
