Bruktiwat Tigabu

Almost 400,000 children die in Ethiopia a year, mostly from preventable causes like malaria, diarrhoea and measles. Growing up surrounded by poverty and then working as a primary school teacher in Addis Ababa, Bruktawit Tigabu saw it all for herself. She decided early on to make a change by educating children on health and social matters. Working from their living room, Tigabu and her husband produced Tsehai Loves Learning, an educational program about a young female giraffe who tackles crucial issues such as health, nutrition, and life skills.
