Our mission is simple. Tanoshi was created to provide a brighter future for ALL kids.
Every child should have the opportunity to develop 21st Century computer skills needed to excel in today’s school environment, such as typing, familiarity with common productivity apps (Google Docs, Sheets, etc.), and coding. However, many kids especially from lower income households and school districts, as well as other barriers, do not have the same opportunities as those from more affluent families and school districts.
The Tanoshi 2-in-1 helps to bridge that digital divide gap by offering families with a fun, age appropriate, educational, and affordable device to learn computer skills and help kids complete their school assignments.
Tanoshi was founded to help level the playing field and give every child a more equal opportunity for future success.
We especially hope to inspire more girls and others underrepresented in the tech space, to want to develop and utilize computer science skills.
