Response-driven participatory street theatre, interactive games and puzzles, audio and video cassettes, tele films, small group workshops, television serials - Nalamdana explores the full range of communicative possibilities to reach out to people.
Initially, we addressed a wide variety of health topics ranging from alcoholism, cancer prevention and suicide prevention to clean water and personal health and hygiene. In 2000, after seven years of working closely with communities, we zeroed in on HIV AIDS prevention and Maternal and Child Health as the two areas most critically in need of knowledge intervention.
