Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Short Summary

Many parents have pointed out that Arabic is a tough language to learn and that children struggle with reading from an early age. Little Thinking Minds create edutaining (educational and entertaining) audio visual content that is for children since 2004 including DVDs and videos, CDs and songs, and Apps and online games. LTM plans on releasing an early reading App/online game to be used by children at home and in schools to help children learn Arabic reading through an exciting game/ journey.


Concept

ًِWe are raising funds to produce a very fun FREE app for young kids. The player needs to help Faris/Nour (or any other avatar they pick) to celebrate their birthday party. They need to go on a journey of collecting cakes, balloons and more to get the house ready for the party. At each stop they need to collect enough points through various Alphabet/ reading related games. Each section will contain an explanatory video/song about the letter and then a related game (against time). Children learn the Arabic letters, the name of the letter and the phonetic sound, how to write the letters, recognizing the letter in beginning, middle and end of each work, the "mad taweel and maq qaseer" and other reading basic as well as high frequency words.


What We Need & What You Get
We need US 10K to complete this game

The funds will be divided as follows: 

$7000 game development

$2000 for illustration

$1000 Education consultancy fees

 The game will be made available on the App and Google stores as well as an online game. It will be offered free with in-app purchases.

The Impact
There are 50 million children in the Arab world, many of whom struggle with Arabic regardless of their social background. This App will be offered to schools and as a supplementary tool to help in cementing the knowledge of Arabic and to help in providing the proper building blocks for Arabic reading.

Other Ways You Can Help
We appreciate all the help we can get! Even as little as 10 USD is enough to show us that you care about helping children develop reading skills. You can also help us by spreading the word about LTM and sharing our social media links and visiting our websites and letting us know what you think! Feel free to download our Apps as well to learn more about us.
