The Citizens Archive of Pakistan and SHEEP® joined hands to promote literacy and inculcate reading habits in children through the CAP SHEEP® Mobile Library. The CAP SHEEP® Mobile Library was launched at the Polo Ground-Baradari on 18th February 2014 with students from across Karachi. The launch programme featured a short play performed by students, an art competition and many other exciting activities.
The CAP SHEEP® Mobile Library was part of CAP’s Outreach Tours programme, which aims to educate students from underserved areas in Sindh and Punjab 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 access to library resources in their schools and colleges.
Through this project, CAP and SHEEP® aimed to involve the wider community by encouraging them to donate books and further promote the habit of reading. CAP and SHEEP® established collection points in Karachi for book donations and undertook collection drives in private schools and public spaces.
