BibBus

The BibBus, provided by the Goethe-Institut Libanon, brings books, games, and entertainment to children and adolescents in Libanon to stir their creativity and imagination and to contribute a sustainable access to education.

There is a lot of truth to the old Arabic saying: „That which was learnt at a young age is as if set in stone.” But what happens when children and adolescents have no opportunity to learn because they are denied access to education? In order to provide children and adolescents with access to literature, the Goethe-Institut Libanon launched the BibBus project.    

Starting in Spring 2017, the BibBus will stop at economically distressed regions all around Lebanon, especially refugee camps and informal education. In Saida the Goethe-Institut coperates with the Maarouf Saad Foundation, in Tripoli with SEED and Besmeh wa Zaytooneh and in the Bekaa Valley with the organisations Alphabet and Women Now.  It comes bearing 1,500 media in Arabic, including the latest young readers’ books, picture books and comics for children and adolescents to borrow. The BibBus also offers games, theatre and interactive readings to help teach children and adolescents how to read and support them in becoming creative themselves. By providing age-appropriate literature, the BibBus makes reading fun and accompanies children and adolescents on their path to becoming independent readers.
