This project involved making teaching aids for teachers that travelled to remote areas. Here you can see one of the materials being used. Facilitators were usually young adults who would often travel large distances to the schools in question - they could not be asked to bear heavy weight as part of the kit. Hence the items are made to be stored small but expandable when teaching. Another reason for that is that these schools had no facility for projection, or sometimes even blackboards - so the materials had to be viewable by many children at once. Lastly, the materials had to be easily reproducible.
These graphics were split into 6 separate parts, each part being an A4 sheet. This was so that they could be "printed large" without a special printer. Also, the storyteller could mix and match pieces to suit the story they were telling.
This concept was similarly modular. Even the images used to make up the graphic were modular - they were cut up as transparent pngs and stored on a computer system.
Here we use cutouts of women at various ages to tell the story of menstruation hygiene
A testimonial on the program, and the effectiveness of the teaching aids.
(Volunteer Project) Developing a graphics system as a teaching aid (2015)

These graphics were made as teaching aids for children in far flung rural areas. The topics for these graphics were soil and water conservation, and menstrual health hygiene.
Each graphic was envisioned as modular, made up of multiple easily printable A4 sheets as per what scale was needed. These could then also be used in storytelling exercises.
