'I am very pleased to alert you to our new poster. '100 messages for children to learn and share'. HIFA has kindly uploaded it to the member section of their site.
The 100 messages are on the back of the poster. They have been edited since we got feedback from CHIFA members. The front of the poster is a visualization of how children are spreading and sharing messages and clues about 'how we work'.

Let us know what you think!
We are developing a poster for each topic and we would love topics experts to come and help us and to check
the information or any other suggestions...
