Sinema Leo - Movies Today : Children's Video Storybooks In English and Swahili
To reach a broader audience and make environmental education more entertaining, we have turned our Lucky the Wildebeest and Juma the Giraffe children's books into video storybooks. The conservation and social lessons in Juma and Lucky are now accessible to every Tanzanian in English, Swahili, and Masai. The video storybook movies are shown at rural villages around Tanzania as part of our Sinema Leo Environmental Education Campaign. The Sinema Leo Campaign is building pride in Tanzania's wildlife resources among an audience that has no access to national parks, very low literacy, and little access to outside entertainment.
Sinema Leo means 'movies today' in Swahili, and refers to the portable movie projectors that brought visual entertainment to rural people in east Africa during the 20th century. The recent proliferation of smartphones, widespread cellular data networks, and solar power systems are disrupting the traditional sinema leo businesses. We capitalize on the technologies that are bringing the world to Tanzanians, by making our video storybooks available to all online. Now every Tanzanian, and everyone in the world, with access to network and a smartphone or computer can enjoy and learn, even where roads do not reach.
