Azerbaijani people are celebrating festive Novruz Holiday -- the symbol of winter's end and the advent of spring, an affirmation of life in harmony with nature, indication of equality and fraternity and renewal of nature.
On March 14, Shuvalan Children and Families Support Center hosted a festive event on occasion of Novruz holiday. Children from low income and risk group families living in the community attended the festival. At the festival children performed poems, bayats, spring dances and “samani” dances, and an exhibition of children's handicrafts was demonstrated. Many children dress in traditional costumes and craftsmen bring out their best work.
At the end of the event, a festive table was organized for the participants, and 20 low income families and families with single parent were given a holiday feast.
