Afiya Abbasi is one of our AeN (Azme Naujawan) Ibrahim Hyderi participants, who intensely felt the need for a library in her area. She came up with the idea of a mobile library and named it ‘Thela Cart Library,’ which could go to the children bereft of reading facilities. The initial idea was to promote reading culture among students and to make students familiar with the word ‘library.’
“The cart library received great response from youth, children, and the community, imploring us to enlarge its canvas,” said Afiya.
Awaaz Development Community Organization stepped in and offered an empty space to relocate books to the shelves from the cart.
