Kukua is a Nairobi-based children’s edutainment startup with an award-winning female team working at the intersection of technology, entertainment and education. It’s first franchise, Super Sema, was introduced to children in Africa through literacy apps, available on both iOS and Android. In 2019 Kukua launched Sema’s Lab, the first African kids’ DIY and science experiment series. The Super Sema animated series is the franchise’s most exciting development to date, and will be accompanied by toys, dress up costumes and real science and DIY experiments that children can do at home.
Inspired by her daughter, founder Serlina launched the UK’s first magazine to celebrate Black girls, Cocoa Girl. Giving Black children a voice whilst educating the community about the Black culture. Cocoa magazine is filled with inspiring and empowering content for children aged 7-11 years old. “The most exciting launch in the Children’s sector with a real USP” Cocoa is the UK’s first magazine representing Black children and gives them a voice. As seen from extensive media coverage Cocoa Girl issue 1 has sold over 11,000 copies just from online orders, at one point it was selling over 1,000 copies a day.
Cocoa is an educational tool that teaches children about black culture whilst profiling black role models. These magazines help to build a strong community for young Black girls and boys who are often misrepresented by mainstream media. Cocoa won the ‘Newcomer Award’ at The Independent Awards 2020 and ‘Launch of the Year’ at The BSME Awards 2020.
