The Kitabna Project 


reading, writing, and learning for refugees

The Kitabna Project was started in September 2014 in Beirut, Lebanon, ​by British writer Helen Patuck. In Arabic, kitabna means "our book". 

Our project aims to write, illustrate, and distribute bilingual Arabic-English children’s books to Syrian and Palestinian refugees who do not have access to school in Lebanon and other countries affected by ongoing violence in Syria. Through our book distribution we hope to develop reading, writing, and teaching skills with young people in refugee camps in Lebanon and the wider Syrian diaspora.
