FINAL WALL COMICS

Opinion from the Participant:
Bijaya Adhikari, Haat Ma Haat Child Club : The Training workshop was fruitful for me. I came to know about various wall comics, the skill to prepare it and its importance in social arena. We can prepare wall comics in short time utilizing our own resources. It is very interesting and helps to aware people about social problems. I commit that, I will be developing a wall comic in a week. Thanks to all organizers and trainers.

Comments are Highly Appreciated.
