Ubongo is Africa’s leading producer of kids’ edutainment. As a non-profit social enterprise we create fun, localised and multi-platform educational content that helps kids learn, and leverage their learning to change their lives.

Akili and Me is our preschool show aimed at teaching 3 to 6-year-olds pre-literacy, numeracy, English as a second language and socio-emotional skills critical to early childhood development. The star of the show is Akili, a smart, adventurous girl living on the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro, with a big secret.

Ubongo Kids is our educational cartoon show that teaches 7 to 14-year-olds math, science and life skills through fun, animated stories and catchy, original songs. The show follows Kibena, Kiduchu, Koba, Baraka, Amani and their animal friends, as they go on adventures and solve problems in the fictional village of Kokotoa.
