Information about the project
The NatiV Project
At NatiV, we engineer mobile language learning solutions for children. We create learning apps that help children learn to read and write in their mother tongue. Our research has in a way made submissions on the need to use indigenous languages within the learning process and it has introduced software that not only promotes mother tongue learning and usage but also interests of the learner through utilizing current technology. NatiV is designed in a way that respects many linguistic rights and inclusive education as it also caters for dyslectics. Furthermore, the objectives parallel those of 1) UNESCO’s Literacy for All Policies and 2) The WSIS Action Line C8 - Cultural diversity and identity, linguistic diversity and local content, And many more. We aim to impact the lives of over 750,000 children locally, and over 100,000 children in the diaspora.
