African working children and youth (AMWCY) pass on their skills in making comics

I happened to come across a  very nice comic in the web describing a grassroots comics training workshop, organised by the African Movement of Working Children and Youth (AMWCY) in Bamako, Mali.

Alhassane Diarra of AMWCY’s branch in Segou, Mali, had made the comic which vividly captures the positive atmosphere of the workshop.

AMWCY has a website www.maejt.org  with sections in French, English and Portuguese. The following links include comics:
