I was start my book collection from PU hostels to visited every room of the hostel. First I was introduced about Amal academy what are objects of Amal academy what is it future plan of Amal academy in Pakistan. Then, I was announced about collection of books for Amal library. one of them, asked question that what is the future of that library? how you changed the education system through this library? I was replied that your mention through this library to build Humility and education in the society. Big challenge I was faced when I was moving to Education University for the book collection security guard did allowed interring in university for the book collection. Then I was collected d books outside of university. We collected books from students; some where we faced misbehaved from students’ side as well other people. One student talked very badly with me he said how we believed you are going to build Amal library and you should made a library with relate any person like Allama Iqbal library or any other hero.

Future of the Amal library
The Amal Library will become Modern library in the future which will be based on modern technology as well as helpful for the professionals in their own fields like; banking, marketing and fresh graduates. Also our plan is to expand this activity on a large scale. Met with the team of “SAHARA TRUST”. We present our idea and they were very inspired from our vision. They promise to help us for the expansion. They show their interest in collaboration with us to work as team. The main goal is to facilitate the children as much as we can. Because we believe that these kids are our future and we have to support them. Also our plan to open a school in which we provide best education free of cost. For this purpose we need funds and establish a strategy how to get these funds. We contacted with “MARRY STOPPES NGO” which is associated with “US AID” and also contacted with all pakistan business association in which I have good contacts, they promise to help us to accomplish this dream.
