Drought 360°

Put your class in 12-year-old Daeka’s shoes. She has taken a 360 degree photo to show the effects of drought in her village in east Africa. To complement this incredible 360° photo, we’ve created two colourful posters to help your class to understand how drought affects people, plants and animals.

World Food Day teaching resources

John, Kelvin and Mukta faced many different challenges, but shared one issue in common: food insecurity. These World Food Day teaching resources show the children at home and at school, and showcase the solutions which removed their fear of going hungry. Use this pack on World Food Day, as a harvest festival resource or even as a harvest festival assembly.
