Burundi cooperation started

Originally published on Oct 2, 2010

Resource persons from Finland were Leif Packalen and Johanna Rojola.

The Association for Peace and Human Rights (APDH) in Burundi arranged in cooperation with World Comics Finland a grassroots comics tutor-training workshop in Ngozi in July, 2010. APDH runs a one-year project called: “Towards a culture of democracy in Burundi: local comics on elections and governance.” 

The project intends to produce mainly wallposter comics and publish a collection of comics at a later stage. A total of 60 wallposter comics were produced during the workshop in Ngozi. 

A Kirundi-language grassroots comics manual and a tutor’s guide were prepared for the workshop and are now available on our website.
