ZBC partners with Age of Learning Foundation to help Zimbabwean children learn math on TV

The collaboration, which began in 2023, will enable children to explore a variety of math concepts, from number recognition, to addition, subtraction, and more.

The Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) has partnered with Age of Learning Foundation to broadcast quality educational TV shows to children across the country at no cost.

The ABCmouse Math series presents ten fun and engaging episodes that focus on helping young children develop an interest and enthusiasm for mathematics, while also building and reinforcing their foundational numeracy knowledge and skills. ZBC premiered the ABCmouse Math series in 2023. The show is being aired every Tuesday at 13.30hrs CAT. 

“It is our fervent home that this partnership will create a lot of enthusiasm among our children, as they work to improve their mathematics, which we know is an area of difficulty for many, adults included. ZBC deeply appreciates signing the MoU with the Age of Learning Foundation and looks forward to a lasting relationship with fruitful benefits for children, the partners, and the country as a whole,” said Merit Munzwembiri, Head of Television Production and Archives, ZBC.

ZBC is the national broadcaster responsible for bringing news, entertainment, education and information in Zimbabwe. ZBC currently operates three television channels, offering a spectrum of news, entertainment, and educational content. Its main television channel, ZTV, plays a key role informing, educating, and entertaining the public, a mandate that the partnership with Age of Learning Foundation is aptly seeking to fulfill. 

“We are excited to partner with ZBC. Airing quality educational TV content is central to our aspiration to help improve learning opportunities for children across Zimbabwe, Africa, and the world. We hope our shows will bring great joy to children as they begin to discover the curious, confident, and creative learners that they are,” said Mubuso Zamchiya, Managing Director, Age of Learning Foundation.
