Here in Iraq we have bookstores, but very few picture books or children's literature. Most of the books for children are about learning English, discipline, morals, and religion.


There are no picture books of stories, but people are familiar with oral literature as "grandma's storytelling. It is an important traditional culture that retells the traditions and history of a people. 

In Iraq...

We perform storytelling to students at public elementary schools 2~3 times a week for about 10 minutes each time.

Children undergoing treatment at the local "Childhood Cancer & Thalassemia Center" also enjoy our picture books and story shows. 

We visit Syrian refugee and internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in Duhok province to perform storytelling to them and conduct workshops.

We are building a school library in a public elementary school.

We are putting in movable bookshelves to create a versatile space that can be used not only for reading books, but also for classes and workshops. 

Training for Storyteller

We offer a storyteller and facilitator training course for NGO and organization staff. We will consider why reading enhances imagination, thinking and empathy. We will also facilitate about the reading comprehension, personification, the difference between sympathy and empathy using theatrical techniques, and develop the ability to express the world of picture books.
