What is the problem the social business is solving?
In Tunisia, children with developmental disabilities often lack the therapeutic support needed to ensure healthy development. This problem is exaggerated in rural and poorer regions of the country where children and their families must confront a reality of either inadequate therapeutic support or none at all. As a direct result if children are not given the development support they need, they face a potential lifetime of negative consequences, leading to poverty and exclusion from society.
How does the social business solve this problem?
NextGen tackled this social problem by developing and commercializing therapeutic apps that empower children facing developmental disabilities in Tunisia. Apps can be downloaded to a tablet or personal computer provide access to a modern, adaptable, and accessible therapeutic support.
How does the social business generate revenue?
NextGen sells therapeutic and educational software applications available on Android based tablets. In the near future, NextGen will offer a service that allows therapists to assess children’s needs and behavior while using the app.
