Read Aloud Event in Umm Al Jimal

Our 2nd Read Aloud activity of this year took place in Umm Al Jimal (Mafraq), next to the impressive archeological site of the old city known as the ‘Black Gem of the Desert’. Two groups of 15 school children each took part in fun activities, designed to promote reading and develop self-confidence through public speaking. Thank you to our sponsor Mrs. Dana, to volunteers Omar, Wafa’ and Luzan, and to Canary Co. for the chocolate wafers included in the children’s gift bags.
