With a 25-year history, Aras is the world’s only bilingual Armenian-Turkish publishing house. Its main objective is introducing Armenian literature, history and culture to a Turkish audience, in order to promote peaceful dialogue between Armenians, Turks, Kurds and other groups. With EED funding, they launched Hippo, a series of children's books in both Armenian and Turkish editions to provide children of both communities with a common literary experience.
