Building a School Library in Kabul, Afghanistan (edWeb)

Sajia will tell the incredible story of how she returned to her country, and in one summer, built a library at her former school, Mohammad Asif Mayel School – a school of 3,500 students that had no library. Within the first week home, Sajia secured the interest of the principal and was also able to obtain the approval of the Ministry of Education to enclose space offered by the school to build and operate a school library. There were many challenges, but Sajia completed the library in a very short time, and named it Baale Parwaz (wings to fly) Library. For more information and to register, visit:
