ASSESSMENT SUGGESTIONS

Produce an advert for your chosen charity, outlining their beliefs and work that they do. This could be done as a poster, flyer, or
storyboard for a TV advert, using ICT if preferred.

Use the following questions to help you:
    Why do they help people in need?
    What do they do – the different sorts of aid?
    Where does this happen – here, abroad?
    When – what examples of the different kinds of aid can you give – specific projects?
    How – who does it? How is it organised?
