  • Books With Wings is a philanthropic educational organisation, based at the University of Manitoba, Canada. It is a collaborative project between Canadian and American students and their counterparts in Afghanistan to provide books for universities throughout Afghanistan. A United Kingdom Chapter was formed in 2015.The organisation owes its inception to theoretical biologist Richard (Dick) Gordon.Books sent to Afghanistan were originally mainly medical and science textbooks, but the range has since expanded to include material covering multiple disciplines such as accounting, business, computer science, education, engineering, English, history, law, literature, mathematics, medicine, midwifery, public health and science.Sally Armstrong provided critical support to Books With Wings, and devoted half a chapter of one of her books to it.According to founder, Richard Gordon, Books With Wings is currently inactive, because they no longer have any mechanism to transport books. They still hope to reactivate it if they can find a way to ship into Afghanistan.
