This month we celebrate World Children’s Day (20 November); a day dedicated to all the little humans that make our lives worth living. Started in 1954, World Children’s Day encourages us to create a safe space where we prioritise the wellbeing of kids by coming together and rejoicing in all the wonderful moments that young ones bring to the table.
To show kids – and parents – just how important they are to us, DStv’s launched a brand-new kids pop-up channel that’s packed with entertaining and educational content. ZooMoo is available until 31 March 2021 on Premium, Compact Plus and Compact packages on DStv Channel 314. This pop-up channel is dedicated to the environment, conservation, education, and aims to foster a lifelong love of nature.
