How to use this manual

Food, Water and Family Health has many possible uses.

People involved in the creation of local educational materials can use it as reference. Ideas for writing songs, poems, plays, comic books and newspaper articles may be found in the manual. So are captions and messages for posters.

School teachers can use the manual to involve students in promoting healthy behaviour. Community workers and leaders can use it to promote discussions or group activities.

Those who can read could help others by reading the manual to them. People learning to read can improve their skills by using it. Literacy classes can use the materials for learners. Groups of new readers can study the material to hold on to their skills.

Radio programmes could be developed based on these materials. National or community contests for the best locally produced posters, songs or dramas based on themes in the manual can involve many people and generate new ideas.

It could be translated or re-written to include stories using local characters and issues of concern.

The accompanying posters can be used to illustrate talks to the community, and to inspire artists to produce more posters adapted to the local situation.
