Literacy is a luxury that many of us take for granted.  We depend on written communication for information, guidance, and access to heath care information That is why SADAG created SPEAKING BOOKS and revolutionized the way information is delivered to low literacy communities. It's exactly what it sounds like.a book that talks to the reader in his or her local  language, delivering critical information in an interactive, and educational way.

The customizable 16-page book, accompanied by local celebrity audio recordings, ensures that vital health and social messages can be seen, heard, read and understood..

We started with books on Teen Suicide prevention , HIV, AIDS and Depression, Understanding Mental Health and have developed over 30 titles, such as TB, Malaria, Polio, Vaccines for over 30 countries.

parents guidance during exams

While children are writing their exams, parents need guidelines on how to assist their children during this time. Parents should assist their children in a positive and supportive ways to ease stress. Here are a few pointers that might help parents to assist them: create a structured environment in the home. Provide healthy meals on a regular basis. Parents should be the support system. Don't try to write exams for your child. Don't expect your child to study all the time, allow them time to relax. Do not compare your child with an older sibling. Remember each child is different in their way of studying. Most importantly when a child returns home after an exam, show interest and ask them how it went. Many parents feel stressed during this time, but when you notice your child is not coping and feel isolated and alone during this time, contact the South African Depression and Anxiety Support Group on 0800 12 13 14 or 011 262 6396. The group has an SMS line 31393 from 8am to 8pm seven days a week.
