Gender and Water Alliance

Cartoon booklets on gender and water (2009)

Together with the famous Brazilian artist Ziraldo Alves Pinto, GWA has developed four booklets about gender and water, specifically targeted at school children and illiterate people.

Within the series are four different titles, each available in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish:

Ziraldo booklet 1Ziraldo booklet 2Ziraldo booklet 3Ziraldo booklet 4

1. A Vision of Gender. What’s this?

2. Gender, Water, Sanitation and Health

3. Gender, Water and Climate Events

4. Gender, Water, Agriculture and Food

A special asset of this cooperation between GWA and Ziraldo and his team is the availability of the booklets in digital format. For every language, a DVD is available with the complete booklet as PDF files as well as open files of the drawings with and without the text in QuarkXPress. This enables the use of the booklets in a more flexible way. It makes it easy to translate the text to local or regional languages, to adapt the text to local circumstances and even change the order of the illustrations to create your own stories.

If you are interested in using or adapting these booklets, please contact the Gender and Water Alliance to obtain a hard or a digital copy. Use of the booklets is free of charge, but please always acknowledge GWA and Ziraldo when you do.
