Mobiliteracy Uganda was developed through a grant as part of the USAID Grand Challenge for Development: All Children Reading. The MobiLiteracy pilot in Uganda sponsored by USAID underwent rigorous assessment and measurement performed by RTI, International, a global leader in education. The conclusion is that children do perform better on early grade literacy assessments following the mobile program, scoring better than the control group. Parents stated an interest in the program and a willingness to pay for access. Currently, MobiLiteracy is being prepared for launch to the general population in Kampala, Uganda.
