“Hungry for a Good Book” in Jerash

We found a fitting quote on the wall of the society we went to in Dhaher Al Saru, Jerash; it said: “Hungry for a Good Book”. So it was a pleasure for us to be able to present our “Let’s Read!” activity there which is designed to encourage independent reading among school age children.

STEPS volunteers Aysar, Luzan and Jude did a great job of leading 40 children in reading aloud and fun competitions. We then introduced the new mini lending library, with its carefully selected collection of children’s books – over 135 of them – which will now be available to benefit the local community.

This event was kindly sponsored by Amman Chamber of Commerce. Big thanks to both sponsor and volunteers for helping to make such a positive impact in the lives of these children.
