Summary:
"Developing startegies" looks at three African educational programs in science and technology that have succeeded despite a lack of textbooks and interesting scientific materials. The first, MindsAcross in Uganda, encourages children to write booklets and reading materials for each other. The second, Action Magazine in Zimbabwe, is a project that distributes comic-strip magazines on healt and the environment to all schools in the country.
The third, Kagera Writers Cooperative Union in Tanzania, publishes a newsletter for local farmers and textbooks in science and technology for the local school system. Lastly, "Developing strategies" describes how these three projects are also working on AIDS education."--Container.
