Children in schools typically are exposed to math learning for less than 2 hours a week. Moreover, many of them do not have a learning environment at home. Akshara’s new app – Building Blocks provides access to math practice and learning to children from grades 1-5.

This FREE, fun learning app is here to help children practice math any time, anywhere! The app lets children practice math concepts learnt at school, as a set of fun games. It is designed to work on the most basic-level smart phones, ONLINE and OFFLINE. Mapped to NCF-2005 guidelines, it is currently available in 9 regional languages and offers a total of 250+ intuitive math games.

Building Blocks is being developed with the support of Cisco, A Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative.
