American Non Government Organization Peripheral Vision International (PVI) launched children-based television show to enhance children’s learning on health, science, the environment.
The show dubbed N*Gen which stands for Next Generation was launched by US Ambassador to Uganda, Natalie E.Brown earlier this week at an event held at Uganda Virus Research Institute (UVRI). The launch was marked by screening of the first episode of the show.
The show will air on Ugandan Local channel NTV and 44 other channels across Africa, USA and the Caribbean as well as YouTube starting this Friday.
According to the show creators, PVI, the show is designed to foster a culture of curiosity, discovery, critical thinking while promoting girls’ empowerment and availing youngsters with accurate information on issues that affect their daily lives.
“Our collaboration with N*Gen has made it possible to share the story of our incredible collective work with audiences of all ages across Africa and elsewhere in the World; to offer ongoing learning opportunities for children whose education has been impacted by COVID-19; and to help viewers to stay healthy and informed about viruses, vaccines, and other issues affecting their daily lives,” said Ambassador Brown.
