TOOLS TO  EDUCATE

Education has the potential to introduce change and inform community members, as well as policy makers, about issues that need to be addressed. We dedicated this section to education and provided tools to navigate this topic under policy work because education is powerful and important for bringing change in a community. Feel free to start with the Messaging box if your group is just getting started, or explore by clicking on any of the boxes below:
