Rana Dajani

I am Rana Dajani, a scientist in molecular biology, a social entrepreneur, and a natural-born teacher. Above all, I am a proud mother of four.

In 2006, I held my first reading-aloud session in my neighborhood for a group of children, hoping to contribute to shaping a better world. Magically, it worked. I wanted every child to fall in love with reading, and I aspired for every woman and man, young and old, to become leaders in their communities and to unleash their inner potential for making changes, whether small or large.

I realized that the way for a child to fall in love with reading is by having a role model, a parent who’s reading aloud to them. That's how I initiated the We Love Reading Program—a grassroots effort to cultivate a culture of reading aloud to children in their mother language, owned by the community and starting from one's home.

By enrolling in this training, you become a We Love Reading Ambassador, a living library, and a member of this extended family. And if you appreciate it, PAY IT FORWARD.
