The 2018 grant from Abdul Hameed Shoman Foundation for the Yalla Niqra / ‘Let’s Read’ initiative not only empowered STEPS to establish seven new libraries in seven governorates (as described in previous posts) but also provided more than 120 great additional books for seven libraries we had established previously.
Today’s visit was to Al-Bira Charitable Society in Eira & Irqa, near Salt, in the Balqa governorate where we had established a library in September 2015.
To mark the distribution and involve the local children, STEPS organized a FUNDAY which included simple science demonstrations based on some of the new donated books. These fun activities proved highly interactive and were greatly enjoyed, as were the games, outdoor playtime and lunch.
Many thanks to our sponsors, Abdul Hameed Shoman Foundation, and to volunteers Hedaia, Bailasan, Obada, Abed, Jude, Michael and Abdalrahman who made sure everything ran smoothly. Thank you also to Canary Confectionery Factory for adding special treats to the gift packages.
