18

A local version of popular American educational show ‘Sesame Street’ is set for launch this weekend in Pakistan.

The Pakistani version will be known as ‘Sim Sim Hamara’ with the United States Agency for International Development committing 6.3m pounds to the four-year project.

The US government is hoping that as well as providing basic literacy and numeracy skills, the programme will teach lessons in tolerance and mutual respect.

‘Sim Sim Hamara’ will feature only Elmo as the original character from the hit show. Rani will be the new character who is a pig-tailed puppet with an energetic appeal and love for cricket.

The show is yet to be picked up by a UK Asian broadcaster.
