AUDIO STORY: YASSAMA ET LA CABASSE AUX CAURIS

Yassama and the Beaded Calabash is the story of a young girl who, with the help of the old Baobab tree, saves her village from drought and delivers a powerful lesson about the importance of respecting and honouring Mother Earth. THE ENGLISH VERSION OF THIS AUDIO STORY IS AVAILABLE HERE.
