Thare Machi Education DVDs aim to inform and educate the viewer on a range of important topics that can help improve their own lives, and the lives of others around them. Using instructive images and a narrator, they give short, 20-minute lessons, which cover the basics of each topic as well as causes and prevention. The viewer is able to test themselves in between lessons with a question and answer session using the arrow buttons on the DVD player and at the end of the DVD with an interactive quiz. The DVDs are accessible to anyone. The viewer does not need to be able to read or write; they just have to listen to the instructions in their own language and press the simple-to-use buttons on the DVD player.
