The project, conducted in partnership with QNB Finansbank, aims to foster self-confidence, enhance communication skills, develop the ability to express oneself, and cultivate abilities in written expression, imagination, reading, and creativity among primary school children through the method of storytelling facilitated by youth.
This initiative not only endeavors to make a meaningful impact in the lives of children through the involvement of youth but also aims to create lasting effects with physical and permanent arrangements. The methodology employed is storytelling, which has recently gained recognition and proven benefits as an educational approach worldwide.
Youth participants in the storytelling program will engage in a 6-week endeavor in selected schools based on their analysis of needs. They will assist children in writing their own fairy tales, thereby contributing to the children's developmental journey.
