School in Khatizak village

The objective of this initiative is to establish a school library. The specific school is a girls’ high school located in Kakrak of Jeghatu in Ghazni province, Afghanistan. The absence of books and a library has long been a challenge for the knowledge-seeking residents of Kakrak. This library will be open to both males and females, ensuring widespread access for the community. Set upon a 300 m2 area within the school grounds, the library will have its main entrance from the western side. Alongside the main library area, equipped with bookshelves and open reading spaces, the plans include a librarian’s room, a management room, a conference room, and four restrooms. The library, situated on the ground floor, will benefit from eastern sunlight through its large windows, illuminating the main library space and the conference room. As the day progresses, sunlight will traverse the south or southwest, providing light to the library and the rooms. For safety, the library also incorporates an emergency exit to the north.
