General Information

The 100 Readers Initiative, established in 2019 by a sole founder (myself), and has recently expanded its team by employing two new members: 1- Firas Khalifeh, a media presenter specializing in media and currently having his TV program (شارع الحمرا) focusing on cultural and reading content, and 2- Nancy Hussein, she’s an engineer with expertise in technical development and three additional majors necessary to our project.

The initiative was initially funded by personal savings after I returned from the Gulf where I worked as a teacher for around seven years. It prioritizes fostering a culture of reading and facilitating cross-cultural dialogue among youth in the Arab region. Operating as a community-focused endeavor, the online bookstore offers affordable books to incentivize reading.

Due to funding challenges in parallel with the current situation in Lebanon, the initiative temporarily halted its activities. However, with a growing demand from readers and recognition of its significance in bridging cultural divides, the initiative is seeking urgent funding to revitalize its operations and expand its impact.

Mission and Objectives

The mission of the 100 Readers Initiative is to cultivate a vibrant reading culture and promote intercultural understanding among youth in the Arab region. Our primary objective is to empower individuals to embrace the enriching world of literature, fostering dialogue, empathy, and critical thinking skills essential for personal and societal growth.

Through our online bookstore, we aim to make quality literature accessible to readers at affordable prices, thereby removing barriers to entry and encouraging widespread engagement with books. We seek to spark a passion for reading and lifelong learning, recognizing the transformative power of literature in shaping minds and shaping societies.

Furthermore, we strive to bridge cultural divides by facilitating exchanges and conversations around literature, promoting mutual respect and appreciation for diverse perspectives. By leveraging technology and partnerships, we aim to expand our reach and impact, connecting readers across borders and fostering a sense of community united by a shared love for reading and learning.

Additionally, we can share our expertise in leveraging technology to enhance access to literature and foster cross-cultural understanding, thereby enriching the Network's efforts to promote intercultural dialogue and cooperation in our community.

By becoming a part of the ALF Network, I aim to collaborate with other passionate individuals and organizations to amplify our collective impact and exchange valuable insights and resources.

Moreover, the opportunity to access funding through the ALF Network is crucial for the sustainability and growth of our initiative, especially given the challenging economic situation in Lebanon. Securing additional resources will enable us to expand our reach, develop innovative programs, and better serve our community of readers.
