What's Grover doing in Ukraine?

Building on their longstanding efforts to meet the educational needs of refugee children, for the first time ever, in Ukraine, the people at Sesame Workshop are producing specialized content for children living in an active war zone.

In this excerpt from this week's podcast, our host Seán Collins speaks with Shanna Kohn, Director of International Education at Sesame.

You can hear more about Sesame's work in Ukraine — along with three other conversation about the impact of the war on the men, women, and children living through it — on this week's podcast: Ukraine and civilian war trauma.


We first visited the war in Ukraine on March 24, 2022.

In that episode, Life during wartime, using a lens of whole person care, we talk with people reaching out to others in wartime, making connections, and countering the darkness with (in the words of W.H. Auden) "ironic points of light." You can listen to the full episode here.
