After launching Hadithi! Hadithi! last year in April we are now in over 100 schools in Narobi, Mombasa, Kwale, Kisumu, Nanyuki, Lenkobei (50 kms from Magadi town) and Arua, Uganda, thanks to partnerships with Aga Khan Foundation, Mwitu Na Watu Charitable Trust and Usawa Foundation.
We have completed the entire curriculum for Class 1 in English and Kiswahili, and are now working on Class 2. All our stories are read by actors and celebrities including Caroline Mutoko. Our team of 40 illustrators has been doing more amazing work showing every possible local culture and settings that our children can relate to.
The stories demonstrate our diversity as a country with stories from Kwale to Wajir and how we share the same values be it about family, hygiene or the environment. It re-tells the stories we heard growing up as children as well as looking at modern trends and what they mean for our us.
The Android app is in development in partnership with Solstice, with a beautiful new design and easy navigation for young learners. Testing has already begun and version 1 will be ready in a few weeks. To read more about our new literacy app, Hadithi Hadithi! click here.
