Arab Startup Competition Thirteenth Edition 2020: Social Entrepreneurship Track - Semi-finalist


AYA Animations is a production company that brings early childhood edutainment centered around universal values and moral education. Our first series "Aya and Yusuf" is inspired by Qur’anic teachings of manners, social engagement and environmental stewardship. The characters will be role models for children around the world who share messages of unity, equality and fairness. The series is currently available in English with Arabic coming soon and dubbed into additional languages planned for the future. We are delivering our edutainment content to young, tech-savvy children through our hero series "Aya and Yusuf", as well as interactive e-learning programs. We will expand to an augmented reality app, books, and educational material and plan to partner with schools and NGOs, expanding our reach to children, parents and educators all around the world.
