Who We Are

“A life filled with books is one enriched by the beauty of language and the excitement of ideas.” —Kae Robb, Founder of Books for a Better World

Books for a Better World is an all volunteer organization founded in 2000 by Kae Robb after seeing the great need for literacy support in Central America. Based in the United States, we work alongside dedicated partners in Central America to provide high quality children's books to rural schools and libraries in rural areas.

What We Do

Books for a Better World buys and delivers Spanish-language children’s books to school libraries in remote areas of Central America. Volunteers deliver the books and school supplies to engage with the students and teachers who receive them.

Our Story

In 2020, as we wanted to celebrate our 20th anniversary, but dealt with the disappointment of not being able to bring books to children in Central America, we created a new book! 

La mochila de sueños - Backpack of Dreams is the true story of how our founder, Kae Robb, was inspired to bring the joy of reading to children. Support Books for a Better World and get your own beautiful copy on amazon.com.
