Our Story

KIBERA KIDZ was inspired by immigrant parents raising their children in the US and recognizing the limited diverse and culturally relevant learning materials available for their families. Throughout their many visits to the beautiful content of Africa, to countries like Tanzania, Botswana, Zambia, South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Nigeria & Ghana to mention a few, families have enjoyed an enriched cultural immersion experience by engaging in local cultural activities, share family and traditional norms, values, cuisine and a way of life.

Families recognized this cultural immersion and educational experience need to continue beyond the family vacations.

The founder of KIBERA KIDZ was inspired after a family visit to her native country of Tanzania and spending time in a small, quant village called Kibera - beautifully tucked away on the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro - the birth-home of the founder's parents.

The experience cultivated a sense of discovery for the family and a need to teach and share this with the world and KIBERA KIDZ.

Our Mission and Vision

Africa is home to over 50 countries, 3,000 tribes and 2,000 languages. Approximately 1/3 of the world's languages are native to Africa.

Early childhood educational content is disproportionately represented and made available to families living outside of Africa. Available content often excludes the rich diversity, culture, languages and heritages of Africa.

Our mission is simple, enhance our global village by developing culturally and ethnic relevant, accurate and diverse content for early childhood learners with a focus on Africa.
