Lisa commented on We Love Reading: Refugee-led Reading Circles

Hi Charlotte, this is not my idea. This is Rana Dajani's idea. I only commented on this incredible idea with my support and design services towards her brilliant idea.
However I agree with you that the children in the refugee camps, including the camps in Bulgaria, would benefit greatly from having WLR instituted. Particularly those children who are unaccompanied minors. This helps give them a sense of themselves during this time.
If nothing else it is important to keep the conversation going.
My best,
Lisa

Hello Rana, I think your idea is not only brilliant but also compassionate. Through your presentation, I learned that reading was not done for pleasure among the children. That information makes WLR that much more impactful in the simplicity of your concept and the methods in which you put this into motion.

I would like to ask you if you are thinking of a component to WLR whereby a sign language interpreter would be present during read aloud? I have come to understand that a single Arabic sign language is currently being developed. Might this be something that would be implemented in the future? Perhaps using the books in your travel libraries as a base model to initiate this concept could be used to facilitate something like this. In addition, is there a separate or inclusive read aloud for those children using Unified Arabic Braille?

What I love is the empowerment you provide to the community as a whole through the vehicle of reading aloud to the children. I would love to work with you and your team by offering my design services to create the WLR kit, if you are not currently working with someone. I love the idea of your barter in exchanging information. It preserves and upholds the very idea of WLR.
