Learning skills on TV is fun
Schools closed earlier in the year and they are still closed, as of the time we are writing and sharing this report. In April we made School TV a series of over 200 masterclasses in Hindi that aired on TV in Bihar reaching 20 million children. Inspired by the success of School TV, and with schools still closed, we built a Young Enterprise Skills Chat Show around our graphic novel skills adventures. YESS TV aired on TV in Bihar, and this time it came with an IVR that young people could call to answer quiz questions about skills and win a graphic novel. It also was supported by a free-to-download and use APP called the Young Enterprise Skills APP or the YESS APP. On the YESS APP all of the TV shows are there, along with the videos of graphic novels, complete read-along graphic novels and project upload fields for young people’s complete skills project.
