eLimu is the first company to digitize the Kenyan Primary School curriculum for revision and literacy.
In addition, eLimu is also one of the most talked about EdTech companies in Africa and the leading digital educational content provider in East Africa.
The KCPE Revision and Hadithi! Hadithi! literacy application makes learning fun and engaging for curious children both at school and at home. Most importantly, it has shown to improve students’ retention of key concepts, and test scores.
eLimu’s founders, Nivi Sharma and Marie Githinji met over a game of table-football at the iHub, and got talking about education. What role could technology play in improving education in Kenya? Teachers were underpaid, textbooks were boring, and the “chalk and talk” method of teaching prevented students from taking control of their own learning.
Using their savings, they put revision materials on an android tablet, together with open source multimedia content from around the web, and piloted in a school in Kawangware. By the end of the first term, they saw results increase from 58% to 73%, and realised they were on to something.
