>>> Hello!  I was wondering if anyone on this list knows of:
>>>
>>> 1) Any international health organizing projects?  Other than
>>> some work that ACORN does in South America, I have found very few.
>>> 2) Any domestic health organizing groups in francophone countries?
>>> 3) Any teaching materials about organizing that are visually-based or
>>> designed for populations with extremely low (as in 10%) literacy?
>>>
>>> I co-founded and direct the Mali Health Organizing Project.
>>> So far our organizing trainings have been with populations that have
>>> at least 50-60% literacy (our community committees), but we want to
>>> start teaching organizing as well as health education in peoples homes
>>> (eg, about 2000 people, almost none of whom are educated at all or
>>> literate).  We teach health using these visual flashcards that tell a
>>> story.  We are thinking about doing to same for organizing.
>>>
>>>  I would love to see how people have done this.
>>>
>>> Sincerely,
>>> Caitlin
