KARDA Program

2023 book donations

Karda develops school children’s literacy and critical thinking skills

KARDA, READ in English, program encourages children to develop their literacy and critical thinking skills. Karda is implemented on a yearly basis by Nor Arar in 12 schools across the Lori region and is aimed at 2 different year groups. In May 2023, Oxford Armenia Foundation donated several copies of the same books that were distributed to the participating schools. 

We donated a wide range of books from The Little Prince Փոքրիկ Իշխանը to The Secret Garden Խորհրդավոր պարտեզը and from Treasure Island Գանձերի կղզին to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Չարլին և շոկոլադե գործարանը, to name a few.

Once a year, in April, Nor Arar organises a Karda day (Reading Festival) conference where all participating school children and teachers come together to present and share their views and activities around the books they read.
