WASH Premier Edition Comic Book Available for Free Download!


CAIB Director Francis Odupute is producing the 12 part comic book series “Schoolchildren Battle Malaria and Other Diseases” with 'WASH 4 All' and partnered with Horizon International and MediaBFI, and it’s being offered for free throughout the world!
 
WASH 4 ALL (water, sanitation and hygiene for all) comic book series and short animated cartoon videos are being produced by Horizon International, an NGO based at Yale University, New Haven, CT, in collaboration with the media service of Beautiful Feet International (MediaBFI), a non-profit organization based in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria.
 
The comics are being created to positively engage youths in the fight against diseases related to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.
 
The comic book, “Schoolchildren Battle Malaria and Other Diseases,” was created and designed by Francis Odupute, an award-winning artist and journalist, and his MediaBfi team in Nigeria.  Francis U. Odupute is Founder and President of Bfi and an artist for Horizon International.
 
This is the first edition of a planned 12 part series entitled “WASH 4 All.”
 
 “Parents, schoolteachers, and community-leaders and health care workers through the entire world who can use the comic as a learning tool, are also part of our audience,” said Odupute.  “They all play strategic roles in WASH education efforts.”
 
As Odupute says, “Cartoons and comics are a unique art form and powerful information, education communication tool for public education and behavioural change, especially among youths.  Working together with Horizon International has given us the opportunity to apply our talents to help youth especially in countries where the need for greater understanding of the importance of WASH is greatest.  And to thus engage youths to tackle WASH challenges in the spirit of securing their future.”
 
This first comic book focuses on malaria and touches on other water-related diseases.
