visit some villages in these states.
is already known, Sesame Workshop and Turner have
also tied up with terrestrial broadcaster Doordarshan
to air the series in order to tap as many kids across
India, who may not have access to the cable airwaves.
Workshop International executive vice president Dan
Victor says, "Turner was bold enough to share
its signature show with Doordarshan so that the series
is able to reach out to a larger and wider segment
of kids across India."
about the launch of Sesame Workshop's non-profit organization
in India, Victor says, "We have formed a non
profit organization in India called Sesame Workshop
India, which is being funded by Turner. The Literacy
Yatra is our first initiative in this respect, which
will spread about the educational television series
Galli Galli Sim Sim. This initiative will also
in a sense enhance the show and its offerings."
