Resource book - Activity Sheets
The Child to Child Resource Book is one of the most widely used Child to Child publications. Its popularity led it to be translated and adapted into 31 languages.
This Resource Book targets practitioners, trainers, advocates of children’s participation and others. It contains Activity Sheets, which are designed to serve as a model for them to adapt and create materials that suit the context and realities specific to the countries in which they work. The process of adapting, improving and creating materials is an important vehicle through which we can deliver quality health education that encourages meaningful children’s participation in health and development. We hope this book is a valuable step in making the goal of delivering quality health education a reality for the world’s children.

Adapted from Kassam-Khamis and Muzzafar Bhutta’s article, ‘Affecting schools through a health education initiative in Partnerships in Educational Development’, this is a case study of five schools in Pakistan which implemented their own school health action plan in 2006. The research shows how Child to Child’s approach had positive impacts on children, teachers and the wider community in regard to their understanding of health.
