7-year old Samarth lives in a large joint family in Jalgaon, Maharashtra. He struggled with learning, was often angry and avoided school. To help children like Samarth, Sesame Workshop India used its early education resources to create an application in Samarth’s mother tongue, Marathi. Googly, Elmo and other colorful characters on Sesame’s ‘Play, Connect, Learn,’ application kept Samarth engaged as he discovered the connection between letters and words at his own pace.
Soon, Samarth was reading. His teachers saw a renewed interest in learning and found that Samarth was calmer and more attentive in class.
Sesame’s ‘Play, Connect, Learn’ program has been life-changing for Samarth. He is one of the millions of children who have benefited from Sesame Workshop India’s innovations in education. Imagine the difference it would make if these innovations could be taken to more children in need.
