As part of the promotional activities relating to culture and education carried out by the Montblanc Foundation, we include in this section two publications which can be accessed by contacting us by email.
El príncepe de África (The Prince of Africa)
For the opening story to the “Educar en solidaridad” [Educate together] collection, the Foundation has translated and edited the short story “El príncipe de África”, by Núria Torrell, into Catalan.

It is aimed at boys and girls from the age of 7.
