|Grassroots comics made in the children's mother tongue|
We received an e-mail from Elsa Sysser, who works for the SIL International in a mother-tongue language program in Azerbaijan. She arranged a five-day grassroots comics workshop for youngsters in a mountain village. The number of participants varied from day to day (7 – 15 participants) as especially the boys also had to tend to the livestock of their families.
The children made comics about the winter and about the rain. A detail below:

Elsa Sysser has not received any training for running comics workshops, and used the book “Grassroots Comics – a development communication tool” to guide her through the process. This is possible, you too can give it a try!
