Myanmar Book Aid
2,000 Myanmar libraries were destroyed in early May, 2008 when Cyclone Nargis devastated the Irrawaddy Delta regions. Two million people were displaced, 135,000 lost their lives and the entire country of 55 million was severely disrupted. Many NGOs stepped forward, both international and national, to deal with health and hunger issues, and the local communities displayed remarkable resourcefulness. In the face of initial gloomy reports by international agencies, expectations of rapid recovery were very low. However by September, recovery was apparent in most areas except for libraries. At that time, an indigenous NGO, Myanmar Book Aid and Preservation Foundation, allied with an American NGO, the Institute of the Rockies, to guide the Nargis Library Recovery Project. Our first container of 50,000 books shipped in early April. We expect to deliver a container every two months until our pledge is fulfilled. Myanmar, commonly called Burma in the West, has a tradition of high literacy due to the important role of teaching monks; libraries are sustained by them and donations of local families. Beyond recovery from the cyclone, we expect our donated books to sustain community, school and college libraries throughout the country.
Wings of the Dawn International Institute for Children
Since 1996, Wings of the Dawn International Institute for Children, a 501c3 not-for-profit located in Fort Worth, Texas has been fulfilling the vital need for books and school supplies in rural community schools and libraries in Mozambique, Nigeria and The Gambia. WoD specializes in setting up Life Long Learning Centers in communities without libraries and upgrades existing educational facilities to serve as central locations where children, youth and adults can have access to education, employment and business resources. Our vision is to establish functional, literate communities in Africa to bridge the gap between poverty and prosperity. Our mission is to help build economically stable and productive societies in African communities by ensuring access to self-sustaining educational centers for its citizens.
Books For Africa
Books For Africa is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to "end the book famine in Africa." Since 1988, Books For Africa has shipped over 20 million books to 45 African countries and is the largest supplier of donated books to the African continent. Books For Africa partners with local non-governmental organizations in Africa to distribute the books to where the need is greatest. One container of books can impact up to 500,000 students in Africa over the life of the books. In most areas in Africa, there are no books and students who can attend school learn by memorization. Books For Africa is working to give access to information to adults and children throughout Africa that have previously had no hope of rising out of poverty. Books For Africa supplies shipments of books to rural school libraries, orphanages, adult literacy programs, and community resource centers. Books For Africa strives to help create a culture of literacy and provide the tools of empowerment to the next generation of parents and leaders in Africa.
Delivering Better Lives
The UTi Charitable Foundation Delivering Better Lives was established in 2006 and is based on a belief that everyone in this world has right – A Right to a Roof over their Heads, A Right to Food in their stomach, A Right to an Education and A Right to basic Healthcare.  
These beliefs lead a group of former UTi executives to establish this Foundation of work to provide or improve Health, Education and Community Infrastructure facilities in developing countries around the world. In the years since, establishment schools have been built or upgraded in over 20 countries, health services provided in over 15 countries and orphanages established, upgraded or supported in 6 countries.  
The partnership between DBL and Worldwide Book Drive will enable us to deliver books to children across Africa as the Bureaucratic issues are resolved.
