This is a very simple example of a children’s work calendar that can be used in the CREATE program. This type of work calendar represents the times of year when children are needed to help their families and communities. These can be used to determine the best times to implement school programs. Work calendars can also be created to represent the main activities of men and women through the year. Both types of calendar can lead to structured reflection on gender roles.
This children’s work calendar is based on the descriptions and illustrations in the REFLECT Mother Manual (Archer & Cottingham, 1996). All of the sample graphics on this website are intended to help facilitators and planners to visualize completed graphics rather than to give a standard for how the graphics should look.
