The cartoons, now available in Russian and Kyrgyz, were developed as part of the Meena Communication Initiative - a major human rights intervention campaign in South Asia that began in 1991 with support from UNICEF in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Nepal.  Its main intention is to transform the severely disadvantaged situation of girls and young women in many parts of Asia.
