The story of Farzaneh Shahrtash, our reading ambassador in Iran
Farzaneh Shahrtash, a children’s books publisher, is working together with Esmaeel Azari to promote the love of reading in remote areas in Iran. Farzaneh, an activist in her country, spotted the unfortunate conditions that children in remote areas in Iran suffer from, which deprives them of the right to read for fun. She was introduced to Dr. Rana Dajani though a mutual acquaintance and when she learned about the We Love Reading model, she decided to try it out in Iran. Farzaneh is now helping children in the city of Dehdasht to read in their own language.
