Corporate Social Responsibility
We Love Reading is a non-profit organization registered at the Ministry of Culture in Jordan. WLR’s work is made possible with support from and cooperation with a growing network of private companies and NGOs. Support isn’t limited to donations – WLR provides private companies an avenue for their own corporate social responsibility through methods like sponsorship of a WLR program in a particular location, or the development of a children’s book in a local language with a theme related to the company’s sector.
Local examples of such corporate social responsibility include Aramex, who sent shipments of WLR books to Ethiopia for free; and Jordanian solar energy company Shams Ma’an, who sponsored the implementation of a 2-day training on reading aloud at Prince Hussein Cultural Center for 47 women from the local community in South Jordan. International companies have also taken the opportunity to sponsor WLR’s work, and include companies like Microsoft, who donated software, and Thomson Trust Law, who have offered free legal support.

“The instant I connected with Dr. Rana Dajani, the founder of the NGO Taghyeer / We Love Reading, I knew I wanted to collaborate with her… The opportunity I had to witness this truly transformative and purpose-filled program was beyond inspiring. In all the Jordanian communities we traveled to—from Ma’an in the southern part, to Irbid in the North, to Mafrak in the East—I listened to true storytellers reading to groups of rapt children. Those storytellers… all shared their enthusiasm about the program and what it offers the children: a chance to dream, grow, and learn…”
