Swiss Embassy Sponsors Three Reading Activities

The Embassy of Switzerland in Jordan sponsored three reading activities in December and January as part of STEPS’ ‘Let’s Read!’ (يلّا نقرأ) program to promote book reading among school-age children. These activities are designed to develop interest in independent reading through group games and competitions centered around reading out loud.

The first event took place with a great group of kids in the Jordan Valley at the ‘Holy Rock Charitable Society’ in Deir Alla. Special thanks to volunteers Luzan and Ghassan for their valuable help. As part of the program, the society received a collection of 125 attractive books, which will be used as a lending library for the many school children there. We look forward to our follow up visits, also sponsored by the Swiss Embassy.
