Chosen as one of the 10 startups among 34 invited companies; announced the joint venture in Egypt at the MoU ceremony

Castalia participated in The Eighth Tokyo International Conference on African Development which took place in Tunis, Tunisia, on August 27-28, 2022.  CEO Satoshi Yamawaki made a presentation entitled "Technology and Engineering Education for African Future" with regards to the digital and code education projects Castalia conducts in Africa.  The day prior to the presentation, he signed the MoU for the code education project in Egypt.

Following is Yamawaki's presentation:

Good morning.

I am Satoshi Yamawaki from Castalia, based in Tokyo, Japan.
First of all, I'd like to thank all TICAD officials for inviting a small company's CEO like me to this event.
And on the private side, I am a music lover. It will be an unforgettable experience in my life to have truly experienced "A night in Tunisia".
This picture shows the coding boot camp in Nairobi, Kenya.
One girl came up to us and said,"I enjoyed the last time boot camp so much! I came back this time. This is the material from last time!"
She showed last time's boot camp paper material.
This is a moment I will never forget.
Our goal is Education for Change.
Castalia uses digital, mobile, and online technologies to solve existing educational issues.
We are engaged in two businesses.
The first is mobile learning.
Castalia has a platform that allows anyone to easily create educational apps. This picture is from a hygiene education for midwives in Tanzania.
The second is Coding education, a coding learning service that allows anyone to learn, from children to adults, from schools to consumers. This photo shows a boot camp for kids in Nairobi, Kenya.
This is a map posted next to my desk in my office. You may not be able to read it,  sorry, it's writen in Japanese.
But as you can see, We are already doing projects in many countries in Africa and the Middle East.

Our solution also achieves sustainability.
This is the population of Egypt.
Can you see the tremendous population growth from ages 0 to 9 years old?
Can the same education be provided to a generation of 3 million more children?
We commit to solving Egypt educational challenges through digital education.
And next is the population of Kenya.
The generation that needs education from 5 to 19 years old,and the generation that needs training from 20 to 39 years old are 67% of the total population. Creating jobs for younger people is definitely big issue.
We will implement coding education and training in Kenya.
Of course,  Castalia is a private sector, so we need to seek short term sales and profit. But not only that, we also like to contribute to peace and development in Africa over a longer time horizon.

Thank you.
