THE CATHOLICOSATE AND THE GULBENKIAN FOUNDATION
TO PUBLISH CHILDREN’S BOOKS

His Holiness Aram I and the director of the Department of Armenian Affairs
of the Gulbenkian Foundation have initiated a project of publishing a series
of books in the field of children’s literature.

The decision comes after recommendations by the educational seminar held in
August 2004 in the Catholicosate of Cilicia. Over 100 teachers, pedagogues
and intellectuals from all over the Diaspora proposed giving a new impetus
to children’s literature during the seminar organized by the Catholicosate
of Cilicia.

A special plan will be drawn out for the execution of the project and a
committee of professionals will oversee the works. Further details will be
provided in the future.
