NAIROBI: 26th February 2024

Nairobi City County’s Early Childhood Development and Education in conjunction with Action Foundation has launched a mobile application dubbed Somesha Stories mobile app, a platform that will revolutionize the way we engage with learners with disabilities.

This innovative app offers a diverse array of stories spanning genres, cultures, and perspectives, ensuring that learners with special needs are catered for.

Whether through the pages of a book, the screens of a movie theater, or the pixels of a digital device, stories have the power to transport us to different worlds, inspire us, and ignite our imagination.”

Not only does the app provide a platform for established authors and storytellers to share their work, but it also empowers aspiring writers to showcase their talents and connect with audiences. Through features such as user-generated content, interactive storytelling experiences, and virtual book clubs, Somesha Stories fosters a sense of belonging and collaboration among storytellers and readers alike.
