How we achieve

The National Book Development Council of Kenya promotes literacy and a reading culture through project-based initiatives among schools and the wider community for poverty alleviation.


Established in 1997, NBDCK is a non-governmental and non-profit Organization made up of a national membership network of stakeholders in both the private and public sectors.

Overall Goal

Under the theme Reading for Life, the NBDCK’s overall goal is to help create a reading and thereby an informed/literate society, with an expected positive impact on people’s socio-economic status.
