AIDA Books&More: a project beyond reading

Abstract: Cutbacks in official development assistance (ODA) have forced many NGOs to diversify their sources of funding to continue (and also expand) their projects in destination countries. AIDA is a non-governmental organisation for development cooperation working in Morocco, Guinea Bissau, Senegal, Lebanon and Bangladesh. In search for new sources of funding, AIDA Books&More was born in 2009 in Segovia (Spain). It was the first charity bookshop in Spain and eight years later, 220 volunteers are involved in a project that has an online store and nine outlets (Segovia, two shops in Madrid, two shops in Valencia, Castellón, Barcelona, Santander, and Vigo). This project began as a complement to the financing of other cooperation projects but since 2009 it has been materialised in a stable funding source, which will allow the organisation to launch other types of projects during 2017.
