A graduate student at Yale University, has just joined “We Love Reading” as an intern working on the joint project between Yale University and “We Love Reading” that evaluates MERCI helping Syrian refugees in Jordan. Rebecca is a public health student, who was very interested in the Syrian refugee mental health issue; hence she contacted Dr. Rana Dajani and decided to finally come to Jordan, as she had always wanted to visit the Middle East. What attracted Rebecca the most to the WLR initiative and the Taghyeer Organization was the idea that WLR is bringing more literacy to the Middle East. Rebecca saw this simple internship as a great opportunity to witness some exciting and ground-breaking work happen as books and storytelling were brought into little children’s lives.
