Read Aloud Activity in Karameh

STEPS team drove from Amman to Karameh, near the Jordan River, to conduct a Read Aloud activity for more than 35 boys and girls at the Karameh Sports Club. The children took part in fun competitions based on information found in attractive, well-illustrated children’s books. Thus the event promoted the joy of reading and interest in books, as well as developed the children’s self-confidence through their public reading.

Thank you to volunteers Ahmad, Suha and Martina who did a great job, as well as to all those who helped make it happen. Afterwards we had the chance to take an interesting guided tour of the town and learned much of its historical background.
