Picture Storybook

This illustrated storybook is meant for younger street children (5 - 9 year olds). It is the story of 8 year old Tara, who lives on the streets with her parents.

Each page has questions that the facilitator can ask the children. This is to help the facilitator get feedback on what the children are understanding.

A set of 3 posters were developed for specific stake holders in the project; the police, the community, and pharmacy owners / workers.


Imagery for the posters were developed by piecing together experiences shared by street kids, and then through a drawing workshop held with girls and boys of different age groups.

happy memories may be marked with drawings of flowers, while sad ones may have drawings of spiders and bugs.
