This is the first graphic Novel that was written for Development. It was written by Doctor Raul Schneider, Senior Health Advisor / World Vision Pacific and Timor Leste. The two parallel stories of Marie and Sarah, born in the same village, show how they face life challenges in very different manners.
Facilitators bring this story to remote villages and use it to discuss matters of Health, Education, Justice, Sanitation & Child protection. How the story is told relies on the narrator that 1) adapts it to the needs of the village 2) will speak the local language. This is why there are very few words on the visuals.
I am very proud to have completed the art direction, illustrations and graphic design of the first phase of this World Premiere :-)
