Worldwide Breast Cancer Materials: Translated into Gujarati, now in India

In partnership with Khambhati Charity International (KCI), Worldwide Breast Cancer now has materials available in Gujarati, one of the many languages spoken in India. Thanks to Jayshri Rami and her translator from KCI, as well as several university student translators at Kingston University, London for helping to provide the translations. The beautiful typeface “Kohinoor Gujarati” was donated by the Indian Type Foundry for the project. Here are some photos from Jayshri’s educational tour in India.
