The third story. Palestinian cultural initiative for the generation of conscious readers
How are you resisting consciousness? How do you make the letters light candles in the darkness of oppression and siege? How to make wings with wings that transmit hope and penetrate into the clouds of dark darkness, from the weave of recognition of the clothes, embroidered with symbols of human values and openness to the cultures of the world and the spatial spaces of the new generations, so that they do not forget the identity? This is "necessary".
And the "required" initiative is similar to those launched in Palestine in order to eliminate the siege of the book in violation of arbitrary measures that hinder the dreams of the generations wishing to read, to seek knowledge and to expand the bridges of cultural and humanitarian communication with the outside world.
The initiative occasionally collects applications from 17 Palestinian libraries, divided into 11 libraries in the capital cities of the West Bank, such as the Ramallah, Nablus, Tulkarm and Jericho, six libraries in Gaza in order to contribute to the needs of reading books and, most importantly, a number of obstacles and complications on the path to the introduction of a useful book for Palestine.
Together with the Tamer Community Education Institute in Palestine, the initiative responds to the requirements of libraries that identify the books you want to buy, then lists the books on its website and then begins to receive donations by individuals around the world to purchase and send the necessary books. An initiative to coordinate the delivery of books to libraries in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
With innovative digital and logistic solutions, the initiative has shortened cooperation with international, humanitarian and cultural organizations from around the world, long, hard work and distress that was encountered by friends of the book and reading readers in Palestine to acquire books that are obscured by the occupation. politics of ignorance, impoverishment of knowledge and intellectual opacity.
The most important feature of this initiative is its ability to change the concept of donation of old books, which has long been widely distributed among many institutions that support reading around the world. "Wanted" focuses on attracting targeted and targeted donations that provide the latest books that readers want. Actually, instead of submitting books that go beyond the needs of which languages may not be known to readers in Palestine or whose themes are old or not necessarily the advantage of readers.
While the first phase of the initiative focuses on the provision of books required by children, students, school administrations and educational institutions, they look forward to extending their framework in the future so as to include all age and cognitive, cultural and literary concerns.
