COVID-19 has challenged the education systems in Africa, as of now more than 12 Million students in secondary school are in a risk of missing out their studies due to total or partial lockdowns in all countries across East Africa. These learners need an immediate, reliable and easy to use digital learning solution to support self-study while remaining safe in isolations. Most of the existing solutions are lacking locally relevant, interactive and curated digital learning content which can generate interest to these young learners to self-study. Apart from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is the fact that traditional learning is no longer interesting resulting in poor learning experience & academic performance. Learners in the 21st Century spend most of their time in digital devices such as Smartphones and Television, in most cases, the content which is consumed with these learners have no value towards their academic life.
