Who we are / History

Ana Aqra Association was established in 1994 under the name Iqra' Association. In the early years, the association was focused on distributing storybooks to establish elementary classroom libraries in Lebanese public schools. Regular follow up activities were implemented to encourage reading and ensure proper and uninterrupted usage of the books.

Ana Aqra Association has transformed over the years. Today, we impact more than 140 public schools in Lebanon with our intervention projects through reading and psychosocial activities utilizing the class libraries to support literacy.
