Today is The International Day of Families as observed by United Nations. This day provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to increase the knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting families. Families around the world are changing, many becoming smaller as the number of single-parent households grows, others becoming bigger or different in other ways. Families have become the hub of intergenerational interactions that support us during crisis. Families and family-oriented policies and programmes are vital for the achievement of many of the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by UN and other world-wide agencies.

At ΔΙΑ-ΔΡΑΣΙΣ: Παιδικό Κέντρο / DIA-drasis: Child Centre we have every reason to celebrate… for our small and our big families, the multicolour and multilingual, for the quiet ones and the loud ones… for all the teachers, the volunteers, our associates and supporters who became our extended family and together along the way we made all the difference!

This is our attribution… a multilingual storytelling adaptation of our favorite story “The Family Book” by Todd Parr. The educators, Madia Patta, Evina Dimitriadou-Badawy, Fatheme Raoufi and Maya Razavi, narrate the story in Greek, Arabic, Kurdish and Farsi…
