Sesame Street at the World Bank – Sanitation & Hygiene

A week ago, on June 17, Sesame Street’s Raya and Count von Count were at the World Bank to talk to policy makers and children alike about the need for toilets, good sanitation, proper hygiene and how children can play a vital role in the behavioral change so desperately needed to make an impact.

With an audience of 156 million children in over 150 countries, Sesame Street plays an important educational role in the lives of many. Raya, Sesame Street’s Health Ambassador, and Count von Count, Math Expert, discussed open defecation, access to safe water, and hand washing as important issues in the sanitation and hygiene field.
