Roshan the camel is on an important mission. He’s carrying cargo that feeds the minds in some of Pakistan’s most remote villages. The Camel Library project began last August after the pandemic closed many schools in the area.
The camel travels to four villages on alternate week days. The camel library is open for a few hours and kids can take books home and return them when the library heads back.
The village schools have reopened, but local officials say the people still ask for the camel library. the project's founder hopes to continue and expand the project to cover more villages and is looking into funding. As of now almost the entire budget of $117.50 goes to the employment of Roshan.
