Zari will feature in new, locally produced segments that focus on curriculum topics such as girls’ empowerment, national identity, physical health, and social and emotional wellbeing. Season five of Baghch-e-Simsim (Sesame Garden) can be seen on Tolo TV on Thursday and Friday at 4:00 p.m., and Lemar TV on Thursday and Friday at 4:30 p.m.
Zari, which translates as “shimmering,” will feature in three formats: speaking directly to viewers, interacting with kids in person, and interviewing different Afghan professionals.
Segments from other Sesame co-productions, adapted and dubbed into Dari and Pashto, will continue to introduce children to Muppet friends from the series in Egypt, Bangladesh, Mexico, and Russia.
