Advisory Committee

Background  

Animama is about animations for mothers. It is a not-for-profit project operating under the auspices of International Social Service (ISS) Australia.

Animama aims at providing mothers in the developing world with health literacy and parenting education through animations.  We produce short, easy to follow animations that show mothers how to keep their babies and young children safe, healthy and well developed. The animations are culturally appropriate, offered in several languages and follow international standards for health information.

We have completed the initial phase of the project – creating the website and the first videos.
