Book Dash is a social impact publisher of open-licensed, African picture books for young children. Based on research that indicates the educational value of owning engaging books from birth, our vision is that ‘Every child should own one hundred books by the age of five’. In South Africa, 70% of young children don't own books.

Our goal is to increase preschool children's ownership of storybooks that can be shared to support support family literacy practices and a child's early development. We do this through establishing innovative publishing and distribution models to get high quality books to children.
