On a mission to help children grow 
Smarter, Stronger, and Kinder 

biggy with kids.webp

Here at Sesame Square Nigeria Foundation, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all children. Since our founding in 2008, we have been determined to make an impact in foundational education and health. We strive to build productive relationships with stakeholders when we plan our projects. This is to make a positive impact on all of our pursuits and build sustainability through their active participation in all steps of our project implementation. 


Sesame Square was established in August 2008 as a program and brand of Sesame Workshop in order to implement the Sesame Street Nigeria project funded by USAID and PEPFAR. During execution, the project successfully accomplished all project objectives, and three extensions were granted. Sesame Square has established a fully incorporated entity in Nigeria, partnering with Sesame Workshop, USA. The organization is fortunate to receive oversight from the head office to guide branding and to ensure quality. 

Over the last fifteen years, the Sesame Square project has developed educational projects for children, families, and educators in Nigeria and other parts of West Africa – Ghana, Niger, Mali, and Senegal. All activities have been led by a multidisciplinary Nigerian team with technical support from the New York office. Sesame Square is designed to inspire children to learn while cultivating a sense of pride in their country.
