Commander Safeguard’s latest Mission Cleansweep adventure is out. The new “Jungle Main Mungle” episode is not only HILARIOUS but also a testimony to the amazing talent Pakistan has to offer.
The animation has a star-studded cast including Alyy Khan as Commander Safeguard, Ahmad Ali Butt as Dirtoo, Bahroze Sabzwari as Ghunsanna and Bushra Ansari as Dirty. It also has incredibly sophisticated animation technology, and a song we just can’t get out of our heads (thanks Shuja Haider and Ahmad Ali Butt). The brand hasn’t stopped at entertaining us though. Continuing their “Sehat o Safai” School Education Program, this Independence Day Safeguard has pledged to educate 2 million kids across Pakistan on importance of health and hygiene.
This pledge is part of a larger mission Safeguard has been leading since 2002 to empower kids to become health and hygiene champions. Perhaps the hallmark of this campaign was the birth of Pakistan’s first superhero, Commander Safeguard, created to augment educational material on health and hygiene. Commander Safeguard series ended up doing much more than revolutionizing health and hygiene education though: it transformed Pakistan’s animation industry, and also became an international phenomenon. Safeguard, as the pioneer in animated series, also partnered with 3 Bahadur, an animated movie production by Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, again revolutionizing the perception of heroes to Pakistani youth everywhere.
Commander Safeguard and the associated Safeguard School Education Program are great examples of how private sector brains can contribute to public sector good. Over the years Safeguard has educated 12 million+ kids at the grassroot, primary school level with special support in this cause from key partners Pakistan Medical Association and Infectious Diseases Society of Pakistan. This year again, Safeguard Mission Cleansweep will be playing in schools starting 15th Sep.
