About this Episode

Season's Greetings Glocal Citizens!
This week I'm sharing heartfelt cheer and lots of laughter as I meet with one to Africa's education super stars. In the past decade, her organization has quietly trained more than 10,000 teachers across five countries and the number is set to continue growing with each new initiative under her belt. As CEO and Executive Director of the Sesame Square Foundation in Abuja, Nigerian-born Ayobisi "Bisi" Osuntusa manages and oversees all aspects of the Education Research and Outreach departments of the Sesame Square project. In this capacity, she also co-develops teacher training and other educative materials, providing trainings for teachers, guardians, and educational officers, among her other leadership and implementation duties. Education has always played center stage in Bisi's life as you'll learn listening to the episode. And I trust that you'll come away with loads of new insights into the work necessary to prepare families, teachers and children to be the best that they can be!
