TuKsi Koti la Rangi
Today, we are proud of releasing a software for children in Suajili language.
Children in East Africa face many barriers to learning the computer skills that will prepare them to thrive in the global economy. Today, the first Swahili-language software for children is being released, the result of a collaboration between the Kamusi Project at Yale University and the Open Swahili Localization Project (OSLP) at the University of Dar es Salaam. The software is a complete Swahili adaptation of Tux Paint, a popular free and open source drawing program for children.
