TEHRAN – (Iranart) The director of the Sadi Foundation, a Tehran-based organization that provides Persian language educational services abroad, has said that he is satisfied with the outcome of the foundation’s activities.
Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel, who is also the director of the Academy of Persian Language and Literature, attended a press conference on Sunday to brief the media about the activities of the foundation four years after its establishment.
“Within the economic constraints, the foundation has been successful in its activities,” he said.
“The various publications released by the foundation are good indications of its successful activities… However, there is still a long way to go to reach the ideal situation,” he added.
Haddad-Adel said that the foundation faces a cash shortage, which rivals similar organizations in the world.
He added that the Iranian government dedicated 70 billion rials to the foundation last year.
“However, only 82 percent of the amount, which equals about €1.5 million, was paid to the foundation,” he lamented.
