Access to quality education for millions of children in Africa is limited. School systems, even the most well-funded, are failing with unengaging and rigid teaching and families have little access to supplementary resources available outside of the formal school system. Ubongo seeks to transform learning for kids in Africa by bringing them a fun and interactive way to learn. Ubongo's cartoon ‘Ubongo kids’ and ‘Akili & Me’ teaches mathematics, English and science through local, animated stories and original songs to primary and pre-primary age children. The series is watched by millions of households in East Africa every week.
I can't wait to see how a generation of kids who grows up with Akili and Ubongo Kids, goes on to change their communities and our continent.
