The Pearl Dream Inc. is a platform targeted at kids that contains a large digital collection of African Stories. It allows parents, teachers and tourists to create, participate in, and share genuine African stories online and offline from art, to animated media, to games and common core quizzes.
The Pearl Dream Inc. involves three unique programs: DreamAfrica, a digital collection of African Stories for Kids with illustrated eBooks, animations, voice-overs and games/quizzes; DreamTravel, a Website for authentic African tours and events as a partnership with leading travel entities. (BETA); and DreamStore, an online retail site for sales of animation inspired items with profits donated to Wildlife conservation initiatives.
The Pearl Dream Inc. team, Brian Asingia (CEO), Franco Abott (CTO) and Lisa Nisbaum (CMO), recently launched the DreamAfrica app for iOS and Android devices, which allows kids to read and watch the illustrated and animated stories online and offline; and play interactive games based on the stories. The app is $1.99 per month with weekly updates.
There seems to be a real market for African animation stories out there evident from Tinga Tinga Tales, backed by Disney and ABC and other African media houses.
