The children’s drawing presented here was inspired by the need to make Amaka Amasanyufu” (Happy Families) manual content more engaging and accessible to participating children and their family members. The “Amaka Amasanyufu” (Happy Families) is a manual that was adapted to the Uganda context for the multiple-family group (MFG) intervention which aims to strengthen family life, especially in families where children struggle behaviorally.
School children were invited to draw pictures illustrating the main topics covered through the 16 sessions in the manual. This would not only strengthen community engagement and empower children, but also make the manual potentially more relatable for children participating in the study.
