Bibliobus, a mobile library that moves to public schools, providing schools with an interactive educational program around reading, announces a press release from the group.
In partnership with the Hiba Foundation and the Al Jisr Association, the Bibliobus inaugurates its first edition through a tour of 10 public primary schools as well as 2 centers of proximity in the regions of Ain Sebâa, Sidi Moumen, Hay Mohammadi and Sidi Bernoussi.
This project aims to bring the young audience closer to culture through reading, cinema and different forms of artistic expression. The Bibliobus stops 1 week per school and offers schoolchildren reading, theater, art-plastic and educational film projection workshops. The Bibliobus closed its doors with a donation of some 100 books, of different levels in Arabic and French, in each of the schools in order to supply the school library.
Because education is a priority, the Renault Maroc Foundation has donated to the Hiba Foundation a Renault Master that has been transformed to accommodate all the necessary facilities for a mobile library. Fully supported by the Renault Maroc Foundation, the Bibliobus is not only an invitation to read but also a friendly and fun space for exchange between schoolchildren and animators. The Al Jisr Association and the Hiba Foundation have built an educational program with an innovative and content-rich concept.
Beyond its primary objective, the Bibliobus also aims to federate the various stakeholders in the field of education: associations of parents and students, so as to involve them in the content and pedagogical actions of this project and thus perpetuate this extracurricular approach.
More than ever, the Renault Maroc Foundation has made the fight against school drop-out an important cause for which it is committed. The Bibliobus is one of the Foundation’s projects that makes learning more attractive and may be an additional factor in encouraging retention. The Foundation believes deeply in the organization of extracurricular activities to induce a new vision of the school, arouse the curiosity of the young people and build memories to be shared later, the statement concludes.
