Pole pole.

These words, which mean, “slowly, slowly,” are possibly the most-spoken words on Mount Kilimanjaro.

Like a success mantra, they are a gentle reminder to go nice and easy on one of life’s biggest adventure and challenge.

The UN has identified linguistic diversity as one of the key challenges that must be overcome.

To help overcome this challenge we have launched a Swahili Foundations children’s book series to bring innovative reading experiences to curious bilingual readers.

To help fund this series and contribute to language diversity we have launched a Teespring #Swahili101 t-shirt range. Please take a look. We would love your ideas.

Our latest t-shirt reminds us that often sustainable changes happens slowly, ‘pole pole,’ like climbing Kilimanjaro. Check it out and remember proceeds help to fund the Swahili Foundation book series.
