If it's 2D animation she's interested in, I'd recommend looking at
Hippanni (free but capable edition + advanced low cost £31 edition).

For 3D, Blender is undoubtedly the 'standard' free package and very capable but takes a while to master. If something easier is required, I'd recommend Art Of Illusion as a good free starter, which can produce results quickly; it's a little buggy but quite capable of producing some nice looking animation.

The recent versions of GIMP (2.10) are very good for image manipulation and use similar tools and techniques to Photoshop, but Adobe is the industry standard. GIMP is my image tool of choice, but I don't use it for anything meaningful.
