In Afghanistan, whose educational infrastructure has been devastated by wars and occupations for decades and where a large segment of the population live below the poverty line, students cannot even afford buying books. As part of the project to be implemented at the Kabul-based IHH Education Center, a library will be set up where high-school and university students that receive education at the center and local students and youngsters will have access to books. The library will initially have 3,000 books from history, literature, philosophy, and all scientific fields and the number will be raised to 5,000 with the inclusion of daily newspapers and periodicals.
