On March 27, 2009, Queen Rania announced her role as Honorary Chair of the Global Action Week on Education in anticipation of the “Big Read” event organized by the Global Campaign for Education. Queen Rania addressed the need to provide “Education for All” by calling on millions to join the “Big Read” campaign at the Sandton Public Library in Johannesburg.

After the announcement, the Queen started to read the short story “Maha of the Mountains”. Rania describing Maha’s struggle with family and friends who believe her desire to learn how to read and write- is a dream not worth pursuing. Reaffirming the value of education as a means to achieving life’s deepest aspirations, Her Majesty finally asked children to guess the tale’s happy ending.
