Healthy Behavior

Whiz Kids Workshop was recently awarded a three-year grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which will greatly strengthen our ability to promote healthy behavioral habits, especially among children.

Healthy Whiz Kids

The goal of Healthy Whiz Kids is to contribute to enhancing children and parents’ knowledge and positive attitudes towards hygiene, nutrition, safety and other healthy behaviors. Building on existing partnerships and local leadership for the development of media projects, we have a key role to play in transforming the way health education is approached for children in Ethiopia.

The project includes production of 39 health-focused episodes of Tsehai Loves Learning and the establishment of three Tsehai Resource Corners and one Tsehai Resource Center.  Stay tuned for details on location and opening.  The center will be free and open to the public.
