Contribute now



Worldwide, 64 million children of primary age are out of school.

The purpose of is to provide every child with access to quality basic education.



The word "elimu" is Swahili for "education". We believe that a free quality education is the right of every child no matter her social or geographical background.



We develop software for teaching children the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic.

An AI tutor guides each child through the necessary steps.

Educational Apps & Games

A collection of educational Android apps teaches children basic literacy and numeracy in a fun and engaging way.

Each child can learn fully autonomously, without depending on the availability of qualified teachers.

Personalized Learning 🚀

Each child is guided through the curriculum by our AI tutor Nya and her robot companion.

Nya automatically detects the current knowledge level of the child, and adapts the apps and content to best fit the child's current skill level.

Learning Platform

The software is a platform of educational content and Android apps.

Each child is provided with a clear instructional path for learning literacy and numeracy as efficiently as possible.

The Appstore makes it easy to download and use the software.

Free and Open-Source Software 👩🏽‍💻

Our goal is to quickly distribute the solution to as many children as possible, and we believe that using open source software will enable this.

Anyone is welcome to take the existing code and adapt it to their local needs.
