Teaching Children to Read
Our new literacy app for 6 and 7 year olds, Hadithi Hadithi! includes dozens of stories written by Kenyan teachers, illustrated by artists across East Africa, and read by actors and celebrities, such as Caroline Mutoko.
Aligned to the Curriculum
Covers the entire curriculum for both English and Kiswahili in Foundation Level, with stories and vocabulary matching the syllabus topics for each week of the school year.
Each story includes letter tracing, spelling and sentence making exercises. Together they form a scientifically-proven pedagogy called Reading to Learn, which has shown to improve progress in reading and writing 4x faster than traditional methods.
Somali literacy in Dadaab
Developed with SIL and NRC, our Somali literacy app was built for adults who had missed out on school, with stories about everyday life in Dadaab refugee camp. An independent study found a remarkable 3X faster progress than the control group!
