This program works with schools where the trainers initiate a Story Group, which aims to promote the habit of reading among students, encouraging them to adopt continuous free reading, and developing critical and creative skills by discussing the contents of the book. Through this project, PWW organizes reading promotion activities in schools in different areas of Palestine. This project depends on reading and creative writing workshops, opening communication bridges between the schools’ students and authors. In addition, we use our relations with local publishers to develop mobile libraries in each school we work with. We coordinate annually with the Ministry of Education and local publishers to implement this program successfully.
Promote creative reading and critical thinking among youth as well as motivating them to enjoy reading as a regular habit.
Activate school and public libraries by encouraging youth to interact with experienced writers in order to transfer knowledge and expertise.
Develop youth’s ability to express themselves by urging them to shed feelings of fear, norms, and tradition.
Provide tool to create dialogue within a cultural framework. Groups discuss texts and host writers who facilitate conversation, listening, and discussion among the students based on logical arguments. They further aim to foster mutual respect between the students.
Project Target Group: 10th and 11th grade students at female and male government schools.
