In a bid to promote literacy and inculcate reading habits in children, The Citizens Archive of Pakistan and SHEEP® launched the CAP SHEEP® Mobile Library.
The CAP SHEEP® Mobile Library was a part of CAP’s Outreach Tours programme, which aimed to educate over 8,000 students from low-income institutions in Karachi and Lahore through carefully planned syllabi and through the use of film, spoken word and photography. Most of these students had never been to a public library and did not have the access to library resources in their schools and colleges. CAP believes that every child must have access to books and aimed to provide these students with the opportunity and access to books through the CAP SHEEP® Mobile Library.
Through this project, CAP and SHEEP® endeavoured to involve the wider community by encouraging them to donate books and further promote the habit of reading. CAP and SHEEP® had also established collection points in Karachi for book donations undertook collection drives in private schools and public spaces.
