We prepared gifts for our partners and friends from the Civil society and the National Assembly for the New Year and Christmas as a toy for the Christmas tree. The toys are illustrating prominent Armenian women who made major contributions to social, political, and cultural life.
These women are the best example of inspiration for us.
We are very glad for the cooperation with the Mughdusyan Art Center, where female artists created these toys within the framework of the project Modern Parliament for a Modern Armenia.
