KAINO Uganda

Uganda-based edtech startup, KAINO, has reportedly launched a homeschooling app for early childhood development (ECD). The launch, according to reports, was in response to the closure of schools in the country as a result of COVID-19.

Earlier in 2018, the startup was in the process of piloting its e-learning solution KAINOtab, offering teachers, students and parents access to online guides and textbooks, assessment tools and educational games both online and offline.

However, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the startup pivoted to solve what it considered to be a pressing need.

Speaking on the new launch, and the general operation of the startup, Alfred Opio chief executive officer (CEO) noted that the KAINO idea had been in the pipeline before the pandemic, noting that the unrest only pushed it out before the public.

He explained: “Because of COVID-19, all schools were closed here in Uganda. The government has moved to open schools this month, but only for final year students.

The rest still don’t know when they will get back to school. KAINO had been building a product for schools before the pandemic but when it hit and schools closed, we had to pivot real quick and started developing a homeschooling app for ECD.”
