The Magic of Lakou Kajou
If you’ve ever watched Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, or any other children’s educational television program, you understand the magic (and fun!) of characters bringing learning to life for young learners. Chary Cole and Alexandrine Benjamin of Blue Butterfly Collaborative and two creators of the Haitian educational program Lakou Kajou are very familiar with this magic. Chary and Alexandrine recently joined the GC-DWC for a conversation on the role of Lakou Kajou in education in Haiti and pulled back the curtain on their creative process to give us a glimpse on just how the magic is made.
