Children, especially girls, are too often overlooked in crisis, and we are determined to ensure that all children and those who care for them are not left behind during the current COVID-19 crisis.
One of the best ways to mitigate the effects of inequity and trauma is through promoting engagement between children and the adults who care for them – which is especially apparent in the current crisis as families stay home and try to navigate their “for now normal.”
Through our new COVID-19 response initiative, Caring for Each Other, Sesame Workshop is responding to critical needs of children and their families around the world. We are equipping both male and female caregivers with the resources to create a nurturing and predictable home learning environment that fosters children’s resilience and provides them with tools to help them manage their own stress. These resources are available in 18 languages, and are distributed through a wide range of partners in the US and globally, through television, radio, online content, mobile apps, and direct outreach in communities through partnerships with local schools and service providers.
Thank you for joining our campaign to Help Sesame Street Educate Girls Worldwide. Your support ensures that we can further our gender equity work even in the face of crisis, and continue to help children everywhere grow smarter, stronger, and kinder.
