Winter 2020 Update from Sesame Workshop!

Thanks to your support of our campaign,Help Sesame Street Educate Girls Worldwide,Sesame Workshop has been able to reach girls with critical early education and promote gender equity and inclusion among all children. 
With partners in Nigeria, Sesame Workshop will be creating and distributing brand-new content to 70 schools. The content, including a storybook and play mat, will explore the intersections of gender and Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) practices at school.  

The materials will be used in schools to teach children: 

  • To use the latrine at school—and encourage classmates to do the same 
  • To practice good hygiene  
  • To share the responsibility for handling water and doing chores at home 

The materials will also encourage and empower girls to be confident, express themselves, and actively participate in school.  

Currently, the new materials are being tested with local children and teachers to ensure the messages are clear and comprehension of the materials is high. Based on the research results, we'll make revisions to strengthen the materials and then distribute them to schools nationwide.
