This hot-off-the-press Resource Guide was developed using an innovative, participatory process of extracting practical guidance, lessons learned and promising practices from the work PCI has been doing as facilitator of the USAID/USDA Coordination Committee in Huehuetenango, Guatemala, as well as promising/best practices and experience in effective coordination from many other FNS implementing organizations around the world.
Say and Play: A Tool for Young Children and Those who Care for Them
Say and Play is an interactive tool designed for orphans and vulnerable children from three to six years old and those who care for them. This includes parents, caregivers, early child development teachers, home-based care teams and all those who take an interest in the welfare of young children. Though Say and Play involves children from three to six years old, it also addresses the needs of newborn to three year olds by providing guidelines for parents and caregivers. It uses pictures, stories and games to help children talk about their lives and, through these activities, it guides adults to identify and support the emotional and social needs of children.
