At the moment, we're offering Ukrainian children's books only. See here for information on the five available titles.
To apply for books from Books Away From Home, you must be or represent one of the following:
Refugee family or host family
Schools, hospitals and libraries can order our books at cost price (5 euros per set) plus shipping. Books are free for refugee shelters/hostels, refugee families and host families, though shipping costs will apply. We strive to keep costs as low as possible and are completely non-profit: all money from sales is used to print and distribute additional books and fund new projects. Book delivery times will vary. While you're waiting, be sure to check this website regularly for ideas, games and reading material for the refugee kids in your classroom, neighborhood, and family.
Use the application form on this page to order. Families are eligible for one set, but do let us know if you need extra sets for friends and neighbors. (Books are packaged by title, so you'll need to compile the 5-title sets yourself. Or ask the kids to help! 🤩.) Feel free to contact us if your own situation does not fall into one of the above categories. We're happy to discuss other options.
Plans are now in the making for our next book project. We'll keep you posted!
