Kitabna goes live!

Kitabna goes live!

Today, on the 30th October 2014, went live on the world wide web. If you read my last blogpost, Finding readers in Syria's lost generation, I hope you will be as happy and curious as me to see our website on the internet! Please explore our site to discover our writing and reading project with refugees in Lebanon.

It took us a while to get here, from that first idea of The Giant Watermelon book to readings with the childen in refugee camps, meetings with printers, applying for ISBN codes, developing an e-book to make the project accessible to the international community. 

But we got there, and we still have so far to go!

Developing our logo was a first step, and we took hours to create something that reflected the essential elements of the project: delivering books for children to read in refugee camps. We thought of flying carpet books, books on wheels, kids sitting in the Arabic script of kitabna, كتابنا. And then there was the cat. There had to be a cat.


With every reading, a new story develops.  

The possibilities for Kitabna are so far reaching. 

 Explore our website now to see just how far our project wants to go!

Thanks for reading!
