LIST OF INTERNATIONAL DAYS

Our primary objective is to expand the humane culture and to familiarize people more with nature and international days. Learning the skills and the essence of loving each other is an extended art that is fully elaborated in the poem of SADI - the Iranian well-known poet :

The children of humanity are each others limbs
That shares an origin in their creator
When one limb passes its days in pain
The other limbs can not remain easy
You who feel no pain at the suffering of others
It is not fitting you be called human
