Dost builds software, audio content, and toolkits for schools to promote parent engagement and holistic child development. Our first mobile product puts parents at the center of their child’s early learning, a period when 90% of brain development occurs. Currently launched in India, Dost reached 10,000 families in its first full year of operations and aims to turn 1 million homes into learning labs by 2020. Dost is backed by Y Combinator and the Mulago Foundation.
