Good Practice: 

I want to present the project "Libraries are the source of knowledge". The project is implemented by HoMAT in Jordan and includes upgrading children's libraries in underprivileged areas of Amman through conducting libraries maintenance, training librarians on using storytelling and arts and providing libraries with new books and needed equipment.
The project brought together official bodies local communities from different diverse backgrounds, either local or refugees, all cooperated together for the benefit and sake of children. This was accomplished through implementing a carefully designed module.

Project Idea: 

The idea will be about creative methods to use arts in working with children, especially refugees from different cultural backgroubds in hosting communities.
HoMAT conducted some activities in this domain and participated in different events to network regarding this topic. A full concept is currently under development and will be ready within 3 - 4 months.
