Blue Butterfly's Executive Director Charlotte Cole and producer Linda Costigan have conducted several writing workshops for the scriptwriters of Tsehai Loves Learning, an award-winning Ethiopian children's media program produced by WhizKids Workshop. The program reaches 2.8 million young children throughout Ethiopia, many of whom have limited access to early education. Dr. Cole and Ms. Costigan worked with the WhizKids team to hone educational messaging, develop characters, write scripts, and design a research program. Together they have created a blueprint for engaging educational heath messaging for 39 episodes of Tsehai Loves Learning that are funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
