About Biblionef

Biblionef is an international foundation and its main vision is to give children the joy of reading; children who don’t have any access to picture and reading books. Too many children have to learn to read by means of a blackboard and a piece of chalk and if they are lucky an old newspaper. Biblionef provides new, useful and exciting children’s books to organizations that teach and care for children. Biblionef is establishing book reading and library projects for schools and organizations working with deprived children throughout the world, in both English and local languages. By making books available in their native language, books which link up with their own world of experience, Biblionef tries to widen the horizon of these children and to offer them better prospects for the future.

Mission: Give every child the joy of reading

Biblionef in the World: France, The Netherlands, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Suriname, Belgium, South Africa and Ghana.

Biblionef Netherlands in numbers:

  • 900.000 books distributed
  • 1.200.000 children reached
  • Over 200 schools per year with new books
  • Biblionef in Ghana: installed and supported by Biblionef Nederland in 2016
