Online Coding Platform Curiousjr Collaborates With ACT
The collaboration aims to provide affordable and accessible education to all young learners
CuriousJr, an ed-tech and mobile-first coding platform for kids, collaborates with ACT, a non-profit venture philanthropy platform, to address India's learning crisis by building an ed-tech platform. As per the firm, the solution is designed to teach coding and enable learners to build problem solving, analytical thinking and creativity skills through a gamified experience and byte-sized content. Founded by IIT-BHU alumni from small towns in India; they are driven to make coding accessible to as many students as possible across India, which is why the app is vernacular- and mobile-first, ensuring that even students without access to laptops or most of the market's current offerings can begin learning how to code.
ACT was founded in 2020 in response to the Covid crisis and is built upon the premise that collective action has the power to achieve social impact at scale. Their grants are designed to provide seed capital for incubating and accelerating innovations that have demonstrated the ability to address identified social need gaps at scale.
