The  meeting  on  the  experiences  of reading  promotion- Written by Nader Musavi- 21 August 2017

The¬† meeting¬† on¬† the¬† experiences¬† of reading¬† promotion. The¬† referencial¬† library¬† of¬† the¬† Center¬† for¬† the¬† Intellectual¬† Development¬† of¬† Children¬† and Adolescents: Mr. Musavi,¬† teacher,¬† editor¬† in¬† chief¬† of¬† Kudakan-e¬† Aftab¬† (¬† children¬† of¬† sun)¬† Magazine¬† and children’s¬† rights¬† activist,¬† spoke¬† about¬† his¬† research¬† in¬† three¬† cities:¬† Mazar-e-Sharif,¬† Kabul¬† and Herat. In¬† this¬† regard,¬† Mr¬† Musavi¬† said¬† that:¬† “none¬† of¬† the¬† cities¬† in¬† Afghanistan¬† have¬† a¬† library¬† for¬† children and¬† adolescents.¬† In¬† Mazar-e-Sharif,¬† one¬† of¬† the¬† public¬† libraries¬† has¬† a¬† small¬† room¬† allocated¬† for children,¬† which¬† is¬† almost¬† non-functional.”

The¬† children’s¬† rights¬† activist,¬† Mr¬† Musavi¬† said¬† that:¬† “There¬† are¬† no¬† professional¬† writers specializing¬† in¬† the¬† field¬† of¬† children¬† and¬† adolescents¬† in¬† Afghanistan.¬† And¬† it¬† seems¬† almost impossible¬† for¬† them¬† to¬† make¬† a¬† living¬† just¬† by writing.¬† Children’s¬† books¬† are¬† often¬† imported¬† to Afghanistan¬† by¬† afghan¬† refugees¬† who¬† have¬† lived¬† in¬† Iran¬† and¬† are¬† generally¬† distributed¬† for free¬† to¬† a limited¬† number of children.” Musavi¬† added:¬† “In¬† Afghanistan,¬† cultural¬† works¬† for¬† children¬† are¬† temporary¬† projects¬† with¬† support of¬† foreign¬† countries.¬† So¬† the¬† output¬† of¬† these¬† projects¬† is¬† usually¬† low¬† quality¬† and¬† non-standard books.”
