My sister Nisha and the team at Ubongo bring a unique set of skills and resources to solving the problem of educating children affected by emergencies. This challenge also aligns directly with Ubongo's mission to provide fun edutainment to children to improve their lives. Their passion for education and determination to in delivering it to millions of children across Africa today uniquely positions them for impact here. Some of the key differences that set them apart are:

1) They bring extensive experience in a user centered approach to producing educational content and effectively delivering it at scale through communication mediums (TV, radio, DVDs, USB stick, paper and more) that are available to the even the least fortunate children.

2) They have rigorously measured their impact in partnership with childhood education researchers. This has clearly demonstrated the effectiveness of the Ubongo approach in driving quantifiable improvements in children's educational outcomes.

3) Their approach is scalable and cost effective allowing it to deliver these proven educational outcomes at the scale of 10s of millions of children with a small team and budget.

With an experienced team in place and the resources to execute on this plan, Ubongo is positioned to be a highly impactful organization in delivering improved educational outcomes to children in emergencies today.
