Nigerian primary school kids can win a special visit to their school by children’s TV heroine Dora the Explorer thanks to Nickelodeon. From September 2012, global entertainment phenomenon Dora and her monkey pal Boots will visit 5 schools across the country in Dora’s Back To School Tour – entertaining children and teachers with fun sing-alongs.
Dora’s Back To School Tour is part of the Access Early Savers Financial Literacy for Kids campaign, which aims to teach children 4-9 about financial literacy. The tour follows the Dora Fiesta in Lagos in December last year, which was a huge, sell-out success, attended by over 4,000 adoring Dora fans. The event prompted hundreds of requests from kids and parents to have Dora the Explorer visit their schools.
