Our Commitment to Stories for Good

We are committed to using stories to support underserved populations and communities in need. Extensive evidence shows that early exposure to words and spoken language significantly enhances literacy skills, which are crucial for success in life. StoryKasa takes an innovative approach by providing free audio stories on a large scale, reaching and serving more people while bridging the "word gap."

Our goal is to promote literacy and language development, ignite imagination, and enhance academic achievement and lifelong opportunities. By allowing family members, friends, and teachers to record and share stories, we also foster social connectedness, empathy, and well-being across generations and cultures.

The StoryKasa Name

Kasa has many meanings that capture our vision for the storytelling platform. Kasa means "to speak or talk" in Twi, which is a widely used language in Ghana. It also means "umbrella" in Japanese. And, when spelled as casa it means "home" in Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian. So, for us, the meaning of StoryKasa is something like "a home or umbrella for spoken stories."
