Akili Network launched Akili Kids! on 31 March 2020, the Kenyan home to some of the most trusted and positively impactful names in children's programming including educational shows like Peep and the Big Wide World, Be the Creature, Monster Math Squad, Akili and Me, SuperWhy, and many more; hundreds of hours of thoughtful imagination and measurable learning.

In addition to these great programs, Akili Network is developing a significant number of original local programs for children and families in Kenya, starting with Boom! na Wabi, a program of short learning moments that introduces foundational ideas in math, science, literacy and general knowledge for preschool audiences.

We are working closely with a terrific network of Kenyan talent and producers on original content for Akili Kids!. Our target is for 40% of our programming to be locally produced over the next three years!
