Bruktawit Tigabu with giraffe puppet Tsehai (“sun” in Amharic) who stars in “Tsehai Loves Learning”. Tigabu’s show teaches useful lessons in health and disease prevention. Nearly 400,000 children under five die in Ethiopia every year, 70 per cent of them from malnutrition, diarrhoea and other diseases.
A glimpse of the audio production of Bruktawit Tigabu’s television show “Tsehai Loves Learning”.
