The Family Culture Center at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine organized a cultural awareness program under the title: (Spring of Cultural Knowledge) for a number of schoolgirls in Karbala Governorate, in cooperation with Fayd az-Zahra' (peace be upon her) women's religious school.
The director of the center, Ms. Sarah al-Haffar, told Al-Kafeel Network, "The Spring of Knowledge program, which was hosted by one of the sites of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, is one of the educational and awareness-raising programs that the center is striving to establish, and it is directed to female competencies, including the female students, because this age needs awareness, education and promotion of educational values and concepts that benefit them in home and school life."
