Education and COVID-19 Response
We create learning pathways that are:
- Mother-tongue - Adaptable to many languages - 48 languages already completed.
- No distractions - no advertising, no in-app purchases.
- Designed for low end smartphones (parent/caregiver device) - low memory, processor and battery demands, and works offline.
- Free and open source.
By producing and curating learning content in this way, we are ensuring the digital divide does not leave our most marginalised children behind in terms of access to digital learning.

Curious Learning aims to localise and distribute high impact early literacy mobile apps (free and open source) into African languages, and find ways to get this content to those that need it most.
Curious Learning has localised a proven reading fundamentals app (Feed the Monster) into 48 languages with downloads in over 120 countries. We are now working to distribute this app (and the follow-on apps) to as many learners as possible in collaboration with private sector, NGO and government partners.
We are committed to work with partners to localise and distribute high impact app-based learning content to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn to read.
