What is Tuntimo?

Tuntimo offers children the opportunity to learn about notable Black figures and periods that have made history. It provides children the chance to learn more about people that are often not mentioned in text books, using content and interactive games designed to keep children engaged. The content also aims to boost representation and build confidence.
