eKitabu (“Kitabu” is Swahili for “book,” Kitab or کتاب in Arabic, Kitab or कताब in Hindi) is the leading distributor of digital content for education in Sub-Saharan Africa. The educational impact of books is our foundation, and on that proven foundation we innovate — to lower the cost of books and increase access to them — sustainably and at large scale.
Through our open architecture, global repository of ebooks, and ecosystem partners, eKitabu dramatically lowers the cost of delivering books in local languages, government-approved for national curricula. eKitabu was founded in 2012, is headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya and was named Kenya’s top edtech startup in 2015 by the Global Startup Challenge. To date, eKitabu has brought digital content to over 600 schools across Sub-Saharan Africa: Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, and Ghana.
