The Pelican Post
The Pelican Post ( is a UK-based charity dedicated to supporting literacy and local language reading initiatives in Africa by delivering brand new class sets of appropriate childrens fiction to partnering schools and organisations. We believe storytelling in classrooms is not only key to improving literacy uptake rates and driving down poverty, but is also essential in developing a child's imagination, aspirations and sense of self-worth. "This idea is quite simply brilliant. The Pelican Post is not just about posting a single book but about leaving a legacy that will inspire countless generations of children to learn to read." Lenny Henry, Actor, Comedian and Comic Relief Champion. "Satisfyingly simple, I hope the Pelican Post continues to inspire young minds far and wide." Julia Donaldson, Children's Author. "I have visited schools in Africa where Pelican Post books have made a real difference. Books matter to all of us but they matter most of all to children who can't take them for granted." Jeremy Hunt MP, Secretary of State for Health. "What is very appealing about the Pelican Post is that I think it is rather nice for children to be able to read stories that they can identify with." Alexander McCall Smith, Author. "What a great idea - this gives the individual the opportunity to feel that they can make a difference. And the great thing about books is they go on journeys for whoever is going to read that book." Beverley Naidoo, Children's Author. "Every now and again a small idea comes along which has the potential to make a big difference. The Pelican Post is one of those." John Humphrys, Journalist, Broadcaster and Author.
