Impact(Ed) Educational Programming Hits TV Screens in Kenya

Look out, Kenya! More exciting content is hitting your screens this month. 

Akili Kids!, Kenya’s most watched channel for children, teens and families, has licensed a number of Impact(Ed) documentaries. This educational content, previously only available in classrooms, will be publicly aired for the first time in March and April. 

Episodes include topics on climate, careers, and agricultural innovation. Produced in collaboration with local educators and mapped to the local curriculum, these documentaries build both curricular and 21st Century Skills. 

Check out a clip from the urbanization episode below.

“We are thrilled that this valuable content will reach an even broader audience through Akili Kids! It’s a great opportunity for school-aged children and families to have fun and learn at the same time,” Aric Noboa, Co-CEO of Impact(Ed) International said. 

Anne Sato, Head of Programming for Akili Kids! said, “It’s great for Akili Kids! to expand our portfolio of high-quality educational content that resonates with our audience.  They will really benefit in terms of both knowledge and entertainment.”

The broadcaster will also air our International Emmy Award winning series My Better World in English, having previously aired the series in Swahili.
