Big Bad Boo's International Development has become an increasingly more important aspect of the business and over the last few years, the company has implemented entertainment based educational programs with UNICEF and Ministries of Education in over 15 countries.

Aly Jetha, CEO and Co-Founder said, "we're excited to have Nikki join the team. She brings a wealth of experience to increase our engagements with Save the Children and UNICEF."

In 2020, Big Bad Boo was indicted into the Million Lives Clubs, a select group of companies whose programs impact the lives of over 1 million children who live under $5 per day. Big Bad Boo continues to expand its development projects through existing programs and its sister company, Oznoz, making its video on demand platform available for distance based learning to over 7 million families in lower income and war-torn countries.

"I'm thrilled to be joining a company that is focused not only on diversity and inclusion in the media, but also on making an impact in the lives of children. Whether in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, or the Philippines, Big Bad Boo's approach to reducing vulnerability amongst the world's most at-risk children has been ground-breaking," said Whaites.

Big Bad Boo continues to produce and distribute shows for children, among them "16 Hudson", "1001 Night"s, and "The Bravest Knight" which now reach children in over 80 countries on commercial broadcasters like Prime Video, TVOKids, Discovery Kids, and Hulu.
