[Avian Flu] Shell book available

Dear MLE interest group,
Several of you have shown interest in the below mentioned opportunity. I
just learned that an NGO has produced the shell-book in the Vasavi language.
The Vasavi-Kholchi tribe lives right in the centre of the place in
Maharashtra where the disease broke out. 5000 copies were printed and are
now under distribution.
Is anybody aware of other initiatives?
The website reference in the below message was not so detailed. The
