Rural Inclusion collaborates with several development partners on innovative digital training projects for rural communities.

Organisations leverage on Rural Inclusion’s expertise, access to the award-winning Ostrii platform and in-house creative teams to design, develop and deliver training curriculums to target communities.


Ostrii is an award-winning offline mobile application developed by Rural Inclusion used by partners for community-based agents to effectively deliver training and monitor impact in rural communities.

Where does the name Ostrii come from?

The platform is named Ostrii due to the fact that the ostrich has the largest eye of any land animal and is also one of the fastest birds. This is symbolic of the vision of Rural Inclusion to be able to see far and reach far into previously underserved communities.

Digital Curriculum Development

Rural Inclusion also digital curriculums using 2D and 3D animation in local languages for partners, through our in-house creative team and sector experts.

Example of Animation

Unlike a traditional animation studio, Rural Inclusion has a large team of sector experts, ranging from climate action, to financial inclusion, agriculture and healthcare.

Rural Inclusion also have an in-house team of creative professionals, specialising in animation, illustration and scriptwriting.
