Worldwide, more than 387 million children of primary school age are not achieving minimum proficiency levels in reading & math.
The purpose of elimu.ai is to provide every child with access to quality basic education.
The word "elimu" is Swahili for "education." We believe that a quality basic education is the right of every child, no matter her social or geographical background.
We develop Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for teaching children the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic.
An AI tutor guides each child through the necessary steps.
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.
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.
The elimu.ai 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.
As the child demonstrates mastery of prerequisite skills, the AI tutor gradually unlocks more advanced content.
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.
The elimu.ai Appstore makes it easy to download and use the software.
Anyone is welcome to take the existing code and adapt it to their local needs.
