ZAMBIA: About 1,000 children die daily from diseases caused by dirty water and inadequate sanitation. To reduce this, World Vision teamed up with Sesame Street to make a new Muppet. Raya, a “six-year-old green girl” focused on WASH (water/sanitation/hygiene), joins special Muppets created for HIV, obesity, and other social issues. So far, Raya has taught 75 schools in Zambia. World Vision, which spends about $100 million on WASH annually, plans to expand Raya's hygiene curriculum into Ghana and other parts of Africa.1
