Since Plaza Sésamo, now in 34 countries, and Vila Sésamo in Brazil debuted in the 1970s, Sesame Workshop has reached children across Latin America with joyful early learning and support, from ABCs and 123s to healthy habits, social-emotional lessons, and much more.
With media, technology, and the targeted educational programs we create with partners, we deliver critical early learning to families across the region, reaching over 40 million people through 77 partnerships.
Innovative technology helps us reach many of the over 6 million refugees and migrants who have fled Venezuela. Displaced children and families are provided free WiFi access to educational videos, activities, storybooks, games, and songs. And our Sésamo ChatBot uses WhatsApp to bring caregivers a menu of resources that support child development.
Sesame Workshop supports families through media, rich educational content, programs about health, financial education, STEM learning, and more.
Crisis Response work in Colombia, Peru, and Brazil
With the refugee crisis expanding into Latin America, we are providing many of the more than 6 million migrants who have fled Venezuela free access to educational content for displaced children and their families.
