On 16 March 2018 The Associated Press reported: The children of Kabul love the blue bus -- they rush toward it every time it pulls into their street, eager to come onboard, their young eyes brimming with excitement. It's it's a library on wheels -- the first such enterprise in Afghanistan's war-battered capital. Inside the bus are rows of neatly stacked books for children, hundreds of them in both Dari and Pashto, the two main languages in Afghanistan. The library was the initiative of Freshta Karim; a 25-year-old who recently got her master's degree in public policy from the University of Oxford, England. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of education, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

She wanted to give Kabul's children something badly missing in her own childhood -- the chance to widen one's horizons, free of the shadow of war and poverty. ...

The blue bus ... was provided by the transportation ministry. All the books have been donated by different organizations or individuals. The donations also pay for the fuel that keeps the wheels turning day-to-day.
