Jolp provides an affordable audio headset with a large volume of curated educational content. We focus on teaching girls aged 10-15 valuable life skill, objective reasoning and science (STEM) fundamentals, in a fun and engaging way.
Each headset is loaded with audio content which is curated by a big community of parents, teachers and people passionate about learning.
Jolp is a supplemental learning tool which positively utilises idle time young girls may have. They listen while they walk to school, ride on the bus, or do chores.
Our content covers various topics like health, nutrition, life skills, safety and mindfulness. We aim to nurture curiosity and let children experience the joy of learning new and interesting things.
Our devices are light weight, low power, low cost and self contained with a large storage capacity. They are designed to be used offline. Jolp is very well suited for developing markets.
Many children don’t get exposed to the joys of learning early enough. They grow up in widely disparate environments and social circumstances, and often struggle with basic life skill and objective reasoning. This is global problem with parents being under increased pressure, especially in poor communities.
We have very big challenges in global education:
100+ million youth worldwide lack basic literacy skills, and more than 60 per cent of them are women.
Children account for nearly half of the world’s extreme poor. 57 million children remain out of school.
More than half of children that have not enrolled in school live in sub-Saharan Africa. 40% of Africa’s population is under 15 years old.
1 in 4 children are living in poverty in the world’s richest countries.
Why Audio Learning?
We all like stories. Story telling is a very powerful medium. Listening to stories lights up a huge number of areas in your brain.
Audio content has been largely neglected in education in recent years. Our headsets offer an incredible storytelling medium, with accessible and entertaining content.
Most digital education systems are video based. They need expensive devices that require a lot of charging, break easily, make children a target for theft, and require single-task learning. Screens remove children from the the world around them.
We offer a very affordable solution, with much lower power needs and lower risk.
Educational Abundance Society
At Jolp we believe that all children should have equal access to our best knowledge and wisdom. Technology can enable a global base-level of education.
We want to accelerate learning with highly scalable tools and content. Digitised, democratised, and disruptive.
We envisage a future with peaceful understanding across nations, across distance and borders. With our global community of curators and contributors, we’d like to find the best content to stimulate rational and scientific thinking in future generations.
