About Takalani Sesame

Takalani Sesame is the ground-breaking South African children’s program that has educated and entertained children for the past 15 years.

Takalani Sesame promotes early childhood education while supporting South Africa’s mother-tongue based education policy with television, radio, digital content and community engagement materials in all of South Africa’s official languages.

Takalani Sesame’s curriculum is focused on language, literacy, numeracy, life skills and health. The project curriculum is supported by the Department of Basic Education (DBE) in South Africa.

In addition, Takalani Sesame fosters a healthy awareness of HIV/AIDS through one of the world’s first media-based HIV/AIDS curricula for children and the example of a fun-loving Muppet named Kami who happens to be HIV-positive.
