Hasti, Afghanistan
‘We never had reading books in our school. Now we have a nice reading corner where I can sit and read a book. I especially liked the book about a girl who takes care of flowers. I dream of being her.’ The Taliban burnt most of the books in Afghanistan. ‘I take really good care of the plants at home. I water them every day and tell them stories. One of our plants has flowers. They smell really good.’

"لم یكن ھناك كتب للقراءة في مدرستنا. ولكن الیوم تتوفّر زاویة جمیلة مُخصصة للقراءة حیث یمكنني الجلوس ومطالعة الكتب. أحببت بشكل خاص الكتاب الذي یتحدث عن فتاة تھتم بالأزھار. وأحلم أن أكون مثلھا تماماً". تجدر الإشارة إلى أنّ حركة الطالبان قد أحرقت معظم كتب القراءة في أفغانستان. "في منزلي، أعتني جیداً بالنباتات، فأنا أسقیھم كلّ یوم وأروي لھم القصص. تفتّحت الزھور على إحدى نباتاتنا وھي تفوح بعبق رائع."
