The C-Bulletins were developed by C-Change for communication practitioners who develop and adapt SBCC materials and activities for audiences with lower literacy skills. Each bulletin offers practical, how-to assistance and a list of additional resources.

Understanding how to reach low literate audiences with effective SBCC interventions and materials requires an understanding of literacy, principles of adult learning, and tested SBCC theories, models, and approaches.
 
This C-Bulletin provides an overview of these and assists SBCC practitioners to improve the way they address audiences with lower literacy skills toward the goal of helping these audiences to reflect critically about their own contexts, develop their knowledge and abilities, problem-solve, and take personal initiative and action toward change.
