In September 2017 we invested in Arifu, a Kenyan based digital platform providing high quality educational content to low income people, including youth.
In a developing market such as Kenya, low income populations struggle to access relevant and affordable information to improve the quality of life. Access to internet remains an obstacle and the information is rarely packaged in an easily accessible way.
Since April 2017 we are supporting ARMMAN in India, an organization committed to the well-being of pregnant women, mothers and children up to 5 years old.
ARMMAN, founded by Dr. Aparna Hegde, strives to give pregnant women and new mothers adequate information at the right time to decrease infant mortality. The information is shared through the mobile phone.
