Since it came into existence, it has been committed to using artificial intelligence tools to build the future of Africa, starting with languages. Mandla has built its first app dedicated to teaching African languages.
In summer 2022, the team released their second app, an online dictionary containing words in 100+ African languages, including some near-extinct and dying languages. Mandla aims to preserve these languages by digitizing them and presenting them to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with other world languages.
Currently, Mandla seeks to expand its user base, as well as include more language options in the platform.
