Breakthrough ACTION Philippines, in partnership with the Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education (MBHTE) and UNICEF, created an adaptation of the BIDA Kid print materials to better resonate with the Muslim communities in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM). In this version, characters were added to represent community influencers and key decision-makers in the family. However, the message of encouraging the whole community to keep practicing key COVID-19 preventive behaviors remains the same.

Breakthrough ACTION Philippines developed a booklet for young, school-aged children. This booklet serves as a guide for young students on their safe return to school. It provides basic information about COVID-19 and key preventive behaviors they can practice at home, in school, and in community areas. The booklet also includes fun and engaging activities to help reinforce the key messages.
The booklet is accompanied by a leaflet for parents. The leaflet provides parents with helpful information on the steps to get their children vaccinated such as vaccination requirements, tips on how to prepare for their child’s vaccination, and information on what to expect before, during, and after vaccination.

Being a parent is a daily challenge and faced with the realities of COVID 19, social distancing and self-quarantine, it may be a struggle. For parents, the best way to help their children is to firstly take care of themselves.
Self-care during these times is not selfish because it enables the caregivers to be there for their children as a stable, calm and soothing parent. This way, parents will also be able to better understand their children and help them feel reassured, relaxed and focused.
This booklet includes an illustrated story and activities to help parents and guardians who are contemplating the COVID-19 vaccination for their child have a conversation with their child about the vaccine. The booklet was developed and designed for print availability in health care facility waiting rooms, and can be used in other settings.
