Hi Pragya - I look forward to check-out the materials, and fruits of your hard work, when they're posted! Like you discussed, being focused on sustainability is important when producing materials, such as booklets, but also poses a challenge. So, like you, we found what could be done in country and tailored our materials to those abilities. A greater problem was likely making sure our content was integrated and understanding of the context we were teaching in - as you said "keeping the limitations of their understanding of the world around them in mind." So we partnered with experts in experiential learning and design-driven entrepreneurship for emerging economies, in order to develop a curriculum that would guide students through a creative journey. We worked to teach them the basics, and then introduce them to new tools and schools of thought in order to empower them to then become social innovators themselves. I'd be very happy to share more details as well, if you're interested!
