Samuel Ioron Foundation wish to announce the launch of IVY, the Illustration book. The illustration book is based
on the tale of a teenage girl who is traded into marriage to a rich local chief and is withdrew from school. The tale depicts the consequences of child marriage on the girl child and shows how education is important for the girl child. Overtime, International Organizations and other government agencies has invested a lot of resources into
increasing educational access for girls, positive results have been visible but a lot still remains to be done, this remains so, because of communication and language barrier. Stakeholders and rural dwellers are still yet to understand why education is important for their girl children. With innovative art, illustrations and dialogue, stakeholders will engage more with the project. Visual arts and illustrations translated into indigenous languages will bring to light the issues faced and this will in turn scale up campaigns on increasing girl child enrollment into schools, reducing child marriage and consequences thereof. The IVY Illustration book is sold for 1k! and will be used in communities as an advocacy tool.
