We Love Reading has done a research in collaboration with different universities in this session speakers will discuss this research result and how it can be implemented on a larger scale
Here is a summary of this research: Social networks characterize a set of interactions and relationships between people. They are often crucial to socioeconomic advancement. However, intervention research has not rigorously tested whether they matter to women’s psychological empowerment and life satisfaction, especially in low-resource Middle-Eastern communities.
In 2022, we documented the social networks of 215 women in Amman, Jordan (106 Syrian refugees, 109 Jordanians). We conducted a randomized controlled trial, in which half the women participated in a single day of We Love Reading training, while the other half did not. We collected data before (baseline) and after (endline) the WLR training.
