Jordan Ahli Bank Sponsors Reading Activities – Day 2

On day 2, our Let’s Read! (يلا نقرأ) activity was held in a charitable society in Eira & Irqa, in the Salt governorate. Fifty boys and girls participated in reading aloud and enjoyed the competitions and all the new information they learned.

 

To ensure sustainability STEPS donated a collection of almost 100 carefully selected attractive children’s books, which will be available for anyone to borrow as a lending library.


To our surprise we learned from a teacher that three of the children who read aloud with us were receiving special attention at school because of reading difficulties. Yet they read without problem and thoroughly enjoyed the competition!


It is our hope that this event will help to cultivate in all those who took part a new interest for reading and learning from books! Thank you Ahli Bank, for your sponsorship of these two worthwhile events!
