About the company

Arifu is a chat-based Learning Management System that powers the delivery of educational and interactive content to learners.

Delivering learning content in Kenya faces significant challenges due to the cost and accessibility barriers associated with both in-person and online learning methods. In-person learning can be costly, making it unaffordable for many individuals, and the time-consuming nature of traditional classroom settings can be impractical for those juggling work or other responsibilities. Additionally, individuals residing in remote or underserved areas may find it entirely out of reach due to the lack of training facilities nearby.

On the other hand, while online learning offers flexibility, it requires access to the internet and appropriate technology, which may not be readily available to all, further widening the digital divide. Organizations aiming to provide training to customers, small businesses, and employees also encounter challenges, as they lack easy, affordable, and scalable ways to deliver effective training programs. This hinders the dissemination of valuable knowledge and skills to a broader audience, inhibiting personal and professional growth and contributing to the educational disparities in the country. Arifu offers accessible, affordable, and scalable learning experiences with its cutting-edge, inclusive, and mobile technology, bridging gaps and empowering learners from all walks of life
