Off CC-Hub’s Tech-In-Ed Hackathon, Comes aYoruba: Learn Yoruba On Android


Three winners emerged from the Co-Creation Hub Tech-in-Ed hackathon in February this year.

aYoruba is an Android app from the stables of Asa, it is targeted at children who wish to learn Yoruba. The app is split into topics such as Body Parts, Greetings  and Animals and is available for free on Google Play.

For all our obodo oyinbo friends and ajebutters, here’s an app to help you out. The head of the team, Adebayo Adegbemo says the app is targeted at kids age 5-12 and people who want to learn Yoruba. He also says there’ll be more titles built into aYoruba so we’re hoping there’s a revenue stream from upgrades.

Efiko, a quiz app also from CC-Hub’s Tech-in-Ed hackathon, had received funding from the Tony Elumelu Foundation and the Nigerian Internet Group earlier.

Congratulations to Adebayo Adegbemo and the rest of the team at Asa. I was at the hackathon and I know there’s a long road from idea to application.

Here are a few screenshots of the aYoruba for Android. It’ll be available on other platforms soon.
