Variety Children's Charity Partners with I.D.E.A. on New Pre-school App
Variety, the children’s charity, a global non-profit advocating for kids, has partnered with I.D.E.A. on a new app for preschool children to highlight the needs of the differently able.
Oville World, is an online collection of learning applications for children aged 2-5 years created by International Digital Educational Access (I.D.E.A.).
After a successful launch last year, thousands of young children are using the apps to commence early reading, math, life skills, empathy and safely experience their first app.
Oville World’s new partnership with Variety seeks to create awareness on inclusivity and encourage children to be leaders in a diverse society.
Intuitive Learning with Oville World
Oville World, built intuitively for pre-schoolers, is a collection of safe learning apps that link seamlessly into an online virtual community. In addition to kindergarten prep, Oville teaches important life lessons, including respecting others and taking responsibility.
In the game, young players meet characters and explore an imaginary world to discover new houses that contain a variety of games, books, and music.
Variety’s new character “Charitee” will give the children playing in Oville an opportunity to engage with a character differently abled than other characters and possibly themselves, as well as participate in being supportive members of a vibrant and diverse community.
I.D.E.A. has a mission that stands outside of traditional business goals. Our mission and vision is to impact the world, making it a kinder, gentler more inclusive place for our children to grow in.
We build apps, games, toys, video and music that guide the youngest learner on an exploration that helps prepare them for life.
Our team has been dedicated to this project for a number of years and every person from our first computer provider to our talented artist who has drawn every bit of Oville, all celebrate our success of Oville World together.
“It’s never too soon to learn kindness, understanding and cooperation. The new mantra is Different, but the same,” says Eronne Foster founder and CEO of I.D.E.A. when asked about the fundamental message behind the new content coming to Oville World.
“It can be hard for young children to know how to deal with differences. Here through the various characters in Oville, children learn how to celebrate what makes us unique while understanding what also unites us all as a community.”
Variety is an international organization with 40 chapters in 11 countries currently providing support to children across the globe. It is each Chapter’s express position to raise money and awareness for those who are differently abled, providing resources for children and their families and encouraging their communities to be involved in their support.
Variety fundamentally believes that there is a strong need for representation and inclusion of differently abled children in modern media and through public education. By advocating for young children to be made aware of those with different experiences early on, Variety intends to foster more meaningful relationships between children of diverse backgrounds and help raise the next generation of empathetic and understanding adults.
Technology will change the social learning and development of our young children, which is why Variety feels it is more important than ever to advocate for those who need the extra care and support.
