Picture my World is a website for primary children produced by the Catholic aid charity CAFOD. It is packed full of photographs taken by children in the UK, Cambodia and Rwanda and also has lots of fun games and stories and film clips from CAFOD partners. It is a useful introduction to global development issues for primary school children.

  • Teacher notes to introduce Picture my World into the classroom, plus a presentation introducing the Picture my World photography project from Rwanda, Cambodia and the UK.
  • Where I learn – presentation comparing a day at school in the UK and Cambodia.
  • Teachers’ Guide to developing a project about Rwanda, using Picture my World.
  • Friends – presentation on the theme of friendship in peace and conflict situations.
