We Love Reading organized a Children Book Development workshop under the auspices of the USAID funded Early Grade Reading and Mathematics Project (USAID RAMP) in Amman on the 12th and 13th of September.
The workshop was attended by a number of writers and illustrators who work with the Children Book Development project, as well as respected guests from the Ministry of Education and USAID. The event aimed at inspiring writers and illustrators to write high quality children stories on the topics of refugees and gender as well as physical and mental disabilities.
During the workshop, prominent Jordanian childrenâ€™s writers and other experts shared and discussed skills, experiences, and ideas related to themes like early childhood, refugees, and gender.
The workshop aimed to inspire and equip the writers and illustrators with information and know-how skills to develop children’s stories within the age group 4-10 years. This USAID funded Children Book Development Project operates under a 5-year project that aims to open 1000 community We Love Reading libraries around schools that will implement the USAID RAMP Project.
