History

In 1992, Qualibooks was established with the view of serving the broad educational community with the provision of quality school resources. Registered in 2000 as a Holding company, Qualibooks has since established itself as a trustworthy and reliable service provider within the educational fraternity.

The company expanded and a new division, Afribuka Educational Distributors was established to develop and distribute mobile libraries and storage units primarily to the library domain.  These are known as our Wheelie Bookwagon range. The Wheelie Bookwagons were intended to provide lasting and durable library and storage solutions to the remote schools whose learners were deprived of exposure to quality reading material. To date, thousands of these library and storage units have been distributed throughout the country.

In 2007, Qualibooks Publishing was established and tasked with the writing and creation of new reading and story books.  Since its inception, we have produced thirty six unique stories. All the books have been retold and translated into all eleven official languages in South Africa.  These materials have also been approved by the various provincial Departments of Education to be used as part of the literacy component of the curriculum.

In 2008, Qualibooks Naledi was established based on the commitment to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment. The company is primarily responsible for the distribution of educational and support materials to schools and communities. The shareholders and management all bring with them a wealth of experience from various market sectors, including education, wealth creation, financial planning strategic marketing, SMME and entrepreneurial skills. This is represented in the company shareholding, management and B-BBEE verification certificate.

Since 2009, Qualibooks has actively engaged with NPC’s who share similar core values in committing to the intent of unlocking human potential. We believe this will be accomplished by providing quality literacy and general library educational resources to all schools and communities nationwide
