Online PR News – 09-April-2010 – – Last year, Move One teamed up with Scholastic International’s program ‘Arabic Library‘ and shipped over 600,000 books to Iraq. Arabic Library is a unique educational project developed by Scholastic to encourage the love of reading and learning in children across the Arabic-speaking world, and fill a well-documented need for high-quality Arabic-language books in the classroom with great appeal to children.
The 600,000 books vary in content and include science, comic, real-life stories, fiction and fairy tales, biographies and tales from around the world to mention a few and were donated by Scholastic International to various schools in and around Iraq. They are produced in attractive styles using joyful colors, amusing pictures and expressive cartoons and can be read inside and outside the classroom. Teachers can integrate these books into the curriculum through implementing various activities in mathematics, science and geography courses.
After last year’s success, 46 more containers of books are currently on the way to meet Move One staff in Kuwait, where they are loaded again to be sent to their final destinations in Iraq. With five offices in the country, Move One is heavily invested in Iraq and supports all programs that have helping the country as its aim.
