Discovery Kids has created a sensation through its school contact program ‘Little Singham Squad’. Supported by marquee advertisers such as Dabur Red Paste, Cipla, Unicharm and Dettol, the ‘Little Singham Squad’ has been successful in sensitising the importance of self-defense to over 3.15 lakh students from more than 600 schools in 11 cities across India. The school contact program was executed in cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Nagpur, Nashik, Aurangabad, Jalandhar, Ludhiana and Amritsar.
Discovery Communications India vice president of head of advertising sales and business head of regional clusters Vikram Tanna commented, “A never seen before self-defense animation and interactive activities were exclusively conceptualised and designed for school children to prepare them for any unexpected situations and to boost their spirits and make them physically and mentally fit. The response from on-ground – schools, children and our sponsors has been overwhelming. Little Singham is an inspiration to young children – he is brave, intelligent, responsible, patriotic, honest and has once again proved that he is an agent of change. We have made a good start with the Discovery Kids School Contact program in 2018; now the aim is to take ‘Little Singham Squad’ to a new high with a much bigger and grander school contact program in 2019.”
