Not for profit
uTalk is proud to support onebillion, a non-profit software publisher with the goal of transforming learning for one billion marginalised children. Their maths apps are already in use in more than 30 solar-powered learning centres in Malawi. onebillion is now developing a literacy software that will take a child with no reading ability to fluency in their own language.
All proceeds from the Junior Language Challenge are donated to onebillion. Last year's competition raised over £5,500, which went towards the development of a solar-powered projector for use in Malawian primary schools.
"It is without doubt the most thorough and easy to use language learning tool I have ever seen and once I’ve mastered Japanese I plan on exploring the basic of other languages too." Codie, UK
