About Us


Sesame Workshop is the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street, the pioneering television show that has been helping kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder since 1969. Today Sesame Workshop is a global educational force for change, with a mission to reach the world’s most vulnerable children. We’re in more than 150 countries, serving kids through a wide range of media and philanthropically-funded social impact programs, all grounded in rigorous research and individually tailored to the needs and cultures of the communities we serve. Sesame is a beloved household name in dozens of languages, and it means learning – and fun – in all of them.

The educational organization behind the acclaimed children’s series Galli Galli Sim Sim and more, Sesame Workshop Initiatives India uses the power of media to help kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder. We develop high quality and engaging content for television, radio, print and digital platforms to reach kids ages 0-8 with important lessons in ways that speak directly to them. Through partnerships with broadcasters, government schools, non-profit organizations and our own Sesame Street Preschools, we aim to teach basic academic and life skills, while celebrating India’s rich cultural diversity, in order to promote overall early childhood development. Sesame Workshop Initiatives India is a subsidiary of Sesame Workshop.
