Over one hundred million kids across Africa may never learn how to read in their lifetime. Ubongo believes it's possible to rewrite that story by creating engaging and locally relevant edutainment for African learners. Their multiplatform and fun learning programs, “Ubongo Kids” and “Akili and Me,” help millions of kids find the fun in learning through whatever technology they have, whether radio, TV, mobile, or web. Ubongo’s edutainment TV series and radio programs teach mathematics, science, and reading skills to approximately 5 million children in African countries ranging from Ghana to Tanzania every week. Students who use Ubongo show 24% improved numeracy and 12% greater overall school readiness compared to their peers. By leveraging localized media on accessible technology, Ubongo has created an extremely cost effective and high-reach solution to help close the literacy gap for millions of children at the base of the pyramid in Africa.
