Read with Me in East Azarbayjan Province
Helping children in crisis through literature is one of the most important goals of Read with Me. Because of this, after Azarbayjan earthquake, (East Azarbayjan province) Read with Me experts were dispatched to Harris region to donate and share books with students. They held several Reading Aloud workshops for kindergarten tutors. After this period in October 2012, The Institute for Research on the History of Children’s Literature in collaboration with Society for Protecting Children’s Rights started a one-year project in this region.
Moreover, ever since January 2016 the Society to Support Children with Cancer in Tabriz (Taskin), has been implementing the Read with Me program in the blood diseases and oncology ward of Farmanfarmayan Children’s Hospital. 10-12 children along with their mothers participate each day in the Reading Aloud sessions held at this hospital.
