Significant Ostrii research partnership

Significant partnership for the Ostrii Platform.  

We are excited to announce our partnership with University of Nottingham, United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and Agri Evolve for an impactful interdisciplinary project on Financial Education for Rural Communities in Africa: A Digital Approach”.

The project will investigate the role of digital education and the effective practices of improving financial literacy for coffee farmers in the Rwenzori region of Uganda.

The project is supported by the prestigious Royal Academy of Engineering under the Frontiers programme, and led by Professor Meryem Duygun

Jack Farren ACII, our Co-Founder & CEO said: “We are excited to launch this project to investigate the impact of our Ostrii platform for coffee farmers in Uganda. We believe that our approach to education in focusing on the use of animation in local languages is not only relevant for local communities, but also standardised, engaging and accessible for those with low literacy levels.”
