This project will multiply mobile libraries for improving reading habits through interactive learning in the urban slums of Lahore/Karachi. Target groups include the most marginalized children found in: streets- orphanages- with disabilities-public parks and from garbage picking communities, with special focus on girls. Approximately 9000-10000 beneficiaries will benefit from this outreach project annually. This is a high impact low cost model for the most vulnerable.
Low learning levels and low learning opportunities through interactive reading are key problems of Schools and communities located in challenged circumstances specially in urban slums.

Annually almost ten thousand children in 15 low income neighbourhoods and schools of Lahore/karachi.
