Hi Michael,

I like the problem you're trying to solve. At the same time, I also believe it is trickier than it seems. When I think of my travels to Africa or Asia, no movie or blogpost or story even got close to experiencing the life in those countries. Any this is just the culture shock - then you have deep societal issues which are far less visible, unless you really live up the experience.

I have hopes in VR though. VR movies of issues in developing countries might be able to do just that. Let me know if you need some help with this contribution, I'd love to give you a hand.

Hi Claire,

Thanks for your answer! That sound like a very personal approach. I can see how it pays off for you, even if it is an approach which requires a lot of effort.

Something else: For the project I'm working on, Alpha (mobile app for illiterate adults), we're looking for local partners with experience in teaching and/or in digital learning - who are based in Kenya. Would you have any to recommend? Thanks!

Hi Ilana,

We started by testing with paper and clickable prototypes. Since then we have developed a native Android app, which we use for testing and improvements.
