Cancer – take note and be aware!

The cancer bookie may be small but it carries a very powerful message. Its main aim is to spread cancer awareness through an easy and accessible medium on a popular level. The booklet targers Grade 6to9 learners and is written in a language that children can easily understand. It will be distributed to all schools across the country. Learners can take part in a competition at the back of the booklet and stand a chance to win MP4 players as well as airtime vouchers. The school that sends in the most entries will win a cash prize of N$2,000. (Photograph by Melba Chipepo).
