UNFPA's Regional Director for Eastern Europe and Central Asia Alanna Armitage, UNFPA Representative in Turkey/Country Director of UNFPA Georgia Hassan Mohtashami and Head of UNFPA Georgia Country Office Lela Bakradze have joined the workshop.

"Luna and the Planet of Fireflies" tells the story of a family, where both parents share childcare and household responsibilities, and as a result, magic unfolds all around them.
