Learning to read and write for an illiterate audience

Solodou is an application and a kit that helps illiterate adults to learn to read and write independently.​

Solodou's ambition is to build a world without illiteracy by 2050 and to provide equal opportunities for all. Eradicating illiteracy from the largest cities to the most remote corners of the planet, is one of the challenges it has set for itself.

 

The founder: Ousmane Bah, a Guinean refugee, arrived in France in 2014, after being forced to leave his home country, thus finding himself on the road to exile. His journey led him to Rabat, Morocco, where he taught French for two years at a private primary school. Once he had arrived in France, he began to study web programming; first on his own, following tutorials on YouTube, then by enrolling in a school of WEB Developers for a six-month training course. His hard work and perseverance paid off as he was able to independently design Solodou’s platform and application.
