The research contained within this module was undertaken by Pathways West Africa, led by the Centre for Gender Studies and Advocacy (CEGENSA) at the University of Ghana with partners in Sierra Leone, and the Social Research Centre (SRC) at the American University in Cairo, Egypt.

This module contains a wide range of resources and activities, including interactive comics, films, infographics, timelines, photo galleries and age appropriate texts.
