Lakou Kajou—Educational videos for young Haitian children

Haiti

Blue Butterfly’s inaugural series is LAKOU KAJOU, an innovative educational media program for young Haitian children.

Designed and produced in Haiti by Blue Butterfly’s video production partner Muska Group, LAKOU KAJOU features animated brother-sister twins Lili and Tilou, who encounter fun adventures in and around their family’s lakou (Haitian Kreyol for “courtyard”). These adventures form the foundation for teaching children the Kreyol literacy, mathematics, science, problem solving, and a host of other skills. Intermixed among the animated segments about Lili and Tilou, the program includes documentaries, music videos, and other content that present educational messages in a uniquely Haitian context.

Working with the Community

Blue Butterfly collaborates with the Université Quisqueya in Port-au-Prince to distribute the LAKOU KAJOU series to schools and community organizations around the country.

Thanks to this partnership, we reach children in remote areas of the country, even where electricity and internet access is limited.
