The Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in cooperation with the Latvian Language Agency has delivered education materials and children’s books by Latvian authors to weekend schools in Tashkent (Uzbekistan), St. Petersburg (Russia) and Petersborough (United Kingdom), as well as to the emerging schools in Wales and Northern Ireland.
The program is a follow-up to a similar initiative last year, according to the foreign ministry’s press office.
Some time earlier, in partnership with the World Association of Free Latvians (Pasaules brīvo latviešu apvienība) and with the help of diplomats’ personal donations, books have been sent to more than 20 Latvian weekend schools in Europe in order to promote Latvian language learning outside the homeland.
