We build mobile solutions to engage and empower African language speakers

What We Do

For Africans, by Africans, about Africans

We build mobile solutions that engage African users in their own languages:

  • Through our iAfrika website we engage directly with African language speakers in their own languages.
  • Through our Diji e-learning website we upskill African language speakers through online micro-courses in their own languages.

iAfrika is a mobile website of African culture, customs and history in African languages. Each month it receives over 125, 000 visitors who look at its pages over 550, 000 times. In the last year, iAfrika users have completed 16, 000 surveys.

Do you want to engage African language speakers in their own languages through marketing and surveys?

Diji is an e-learning platform where African language speakers learn in their mother tongue languages. Courses are short, easy to complete and focus on skills development.

Case Studies

Market research and engagement in African languages

We conducted over 14, 500 surveys with iAfrika users to learn more about them and their interests.

We then partnered with companies to offer them relevant products and services.

All in their own languages.

R & D:
e-Learning in African languages

We conducted over 2, 000 surveys to find out if people were interested in learning in their own language, and what they wanted to learn.

We then developed online courses to address learners’ needs.

All in their own languages.
