Our Story

Our story at Ambani Africa began with a South African entrepreneur, Mukundi Lambani, who had a simple yet profound idea – to provide interactive mother-tongue education for young learners. We collectively saw the need to address the under-representation of African languages in education, and from this vision, Ambani was born.


Our journey took flight when our free language app won the prestigious MTN App of the Year award in 2021. The name "Ambani," which means "speak" in Tshivenda, encapsulates our mission to empower learners to communicate and learn effectively in their own languages.


Today, Ambani Africa stands as a dynamic South African EdTech startup, offering a range of solutions that benefit both private and public sectors. At the heart of our offerings lies www.Ambani.Africa, a platform tailored for children aged 2 and above. Ambani.Africa is a gateway to a world of interactive learning, featuring games, videos, digital books, and lessons available in English and over 15 other languages, including isiZulu, Kiswahili, Yoruba, French, Spanish, and many more. Join us on our journey to redefine education and empower learners to thrive in their linguistic and cultural diversity.
