Sesame Workshop Bangladesh, producer of popular Bangladeshi children's program “Sisimpur” is collaborating with UNESCO to promote and popularize UNESCO's three world heritage sites in Bangladesh among the children through its informative children program. 

 

Three world heritage sites of Bangladesh include, the Sundarbans, historic mosque City of Bagerhat, and the Ruins of the Buddhist Vihara at Paharpur. Mosque City of Bagerhat and the ruins of the Buddhist Vihara at Paharpur were enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage sites in 1985. UNESCO declared The Sundarbans as a world heritage site in 1997.

 

 

UNESCO and Sesame Workshop Bangladesh signed an agreement at UNESCO Dhaka office on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of World Heritage Convention on December 5. Susan Vize, Officer-In-Charge of UNESCO Bangladesh, and Mohammad Shah Alam, Managing Director of Sesame Workshop Bangladesh signed the agreement. 

 

 

“I hope that it will be the beginning of a colorful and fruitful journey with Halum, Tuktuki, Ikri and Shiku,” said Susan Vise, Officer-in-Charge, Unesco Bangladesh. “Our partnership promotes the World Heritage sites of Bangladesh for all Bangladeshi children, who are the future leaders of the nation.”

 

“Majority of the people are not fully aware of the three world heritage sites in Bangladesh. This is a topic which each one of us should be familiar with,” said, Mohammad Shah Alam, Managing Director of Sesame Workshop Bangladesh. “Through this wonderful collaboration we aspire to popularize and promote the world heritage sites in Bangladesh toward the children and the young parents in our communities.”
