Graphics and Animations Intern (Remote)

UBONGO is Africa's leading producer of kids' edutainment. As a non-profit social enterprise, we create fun, localised and multi-platform educational content that helps kids learn, and leverage their learning to change their lives. Ubongo reaches millions of families across Africa through accessible technologies like TV, radio and mobile phones. Our show’s Ubongo Kids and Akili and Me currently air in 31 countries across Africa, in Swahili, English, French, and Kinyarwanda. 

We are in the early stages of adapting some of the episodes from our shows into Interactive e-books (mobile apps). Your main role will involve creating graphic sequences for frame-by-frame animations. You may also be involved in creating animations from the frames, but this is not necessary. We are looking for someone who is creative and can get things done!

To be considered for the role you are required to to create a sequence of graphics for the animation specified below.

Here’s the task:

  1. Go to
  2. It takes a little bit of time for the game to load. Navigate the game to page 1, you will find it by looking at the bottom right corner written “1”.
  3. So the task is to replicate the following animation on this page:
  • Mzee Kigo (a man) holding a hoe, has a sad facial expression and is breathing heavily and blinking.
