We organize free literacy programs for adults in local communities in Africa. 750 million adults or 14% of our world population, don’t know how to read or write. Two thirds of them are women and one third lives in sub-Saharan Africa. Our vision is that every adult in Africa gets access to literacy.

Digital Literacy Programs for Adults

Our mission is to deliver literacy programs mainly in local communities in Africa through digital devices. Simply by using a tablet, participants will learn the basic skills of reading and writing. Firstly, we are going to develop a learning software. Secondly, we will provide hardware for participating local communities in Africa. The pilot program will start in rural Northern Ghana.


Tonify is a registered charity. The income of our language trainings goes into the digital literacy programs in Africa. We also receive allowances and qualify for tax-deductible donations. We appreciate and acknowledge any contributions.
