THE KAPTABUK PRIMARY SCHOOL LIBRARY:
A PROJECT THAT HAS BECOME A REALITY
The construction of a library at Kaptabuk Primary School is the first of three Arcese funded projects to be successfully completed during 2020.
Kaptabuk Primary School is attended by about 500 pupils aged 6 to 14 years, led by a team of 12 teachers. Rosa & Associati has been supporting the school for over 15 years and in 2018, thanks to Arcese’s assistance, it was able to expand the structure and make important improvements.
The construction works of the Library began in January 2020 and, despite the months of inactivity due to the pandemic and the compulsory closure of the school, the project has finally become a reality. It took 4 months of intense work that saw the enthusiastic participation of the local community, and finally in October the building was officially inaugurated in the presence of some teachers and pupils attending the school.
It is a simple structure made from brick, built according to local standards. The decision to use modern, recycled and local materials has made it possible to obtain a coherent project that involves everyone and promotes sustainable development within its framework. Today, at more than 60 square meters, the library is already welcoming enthusiastic pupils, and is preparing to welcome a donation of around 200 books, including school textbooks and pleasure reads.
