The World of Razi: A project that combines literature, art and knowledge in carefully written stories and carefully designed events for the beautiful minds of our children who always deserve the best and the finest. Razi’s World is a personal project, idea, and foundation.  The basis of the project is writing in children’s literature and providing valuable linguistic content and fine art that suit children of all backgrounds especially children of Arab descent.

Hanan Armaly Haddad, a Palestinian artist residing in Boston MA, holds a BA in Fine Art, and a BA in Arabic Language and Literature. Hanan is from northern Palestine, Shefa’amr, located between Nazareth and Haifa. Hanan says, “The pencil has accompanied me since I was young until I joined the university and studied Arabic and fine art and took them as a profession. I taught children (3-15) fine arts, held individual art exhibitions and participated in group exhibits. After the birth of my son, I decided to combine my profession and my passion, so I started writing in children’s literature.  “The World of Razzi” project is distinguished by its sincere writing, and its orientation to children as the foundation of society and the hope of this planet.”
