Development Frames is a quarterly series of discussion with professionals working towards communication for social impact, aimed at creating a discourse about the profession, with a goal of building a body of knowledge and practice in Africa. It aims at sharing experiences that help build a narrative and create an understanding on what development communication entails, the boundaries it shares with allied professions, as well as the point of departure.
Animated children’s stories and comic strips
We seek to address the gaps in representation of African characters in children’s stories by focusing on education through entertainment, with positive representations of their contexts and using African inspired characters.
Little Harp Magazine
We are proactive in creating awareness on children issues by ensuring that the children are involved in telling their own stories and their voices are heard. We provide an opportunity for children to influence and interact with the world around them because Little Harp Magazine involves children as key players in telling their stories. We encourage children to be agents of change by responding to critical issues facing them and the society. This is done by sharing art, photographs and write up done by the children on various thematic issues. Professional child psychologists review all articles received and issues that require their intervention are addressed according to their discretion. All submissions by children must be accompanied by written consent from parent/legal guardian.
We welcome submissions by children 0-14years that cover the following thematic areas. If your child would like to submit and article (drawing, writing, poetry etc) please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall get back to you with more details including parameters and consent forms.
