As the World Fighting the War on COVID-19, where everyone is required to stay home to prevent the virus from spreading, StarTimes has put in place programs to help children have fun and learn.

For families with children at home, StarTimes has provided them with adequate programs through its channels, such as ST Kids, Nickelodeon, Da Vinci and Baby TV for young people to watch and learn.

In addition to the television site, these channels and content are also available on the StarTimes ON APP website, which is streamed and reviewed.

There will also be several children’s programs from April, with programs lasting from one to three hours. StarTimes says the ST Kids will change the schedule specially to fit younger kids ’hours.

Early in the morning, there will be a program for elementary school children, a series of children’s series before noon, and two hours of animation in the afternoon.

Home schools are a Television teaching program, opening doors to educate students at home due to the COVID epidemic. From March 27, the program runs every Monday through Friday at ST Kids Saturday at 10:00 a.m. which includes technology, crafts, drawing, and dance.

"We want every child to be safe and knowledgeable both in terms of health and education. Even if children don’t go to school today, they can continue to learn at home.”

Deng Sanming, CEO of StarTimes in Rwanda, says, “As the first television in Africa, the family is the basis of our strategy and children have a special role to play in families. When we are in a state of emergency, we make it a point to deliver educational programs to our customers so that every child can continue to learn daily, safely and at home”.
