This pack was developed in conjunction with a puppet theatre show about the lives of people in an African shanty town. The story of the drama is recreated in strip cartoon form in the pack, so that the pack may be used independently of the live show. The pack explores the interrelated themes of urban growth, health, and community participation in development, emphasising basic human needs for shelter and clean water. The idea of 'quality of life' is also considered. Five first-hand case studies of children's lives in cities around the world are included. The photoset illustrates aspects of life in the United Kingdom and in parts of Africa, Asia and Latin America.
