Kinooze lets kids connect with things they want to know about – News, interesting facts, almost everything.
For kids reading real world stories is essential part of their growth. It lets young minds think on their own and learn to connect the dots as they see. We found that it was incredibly difficult for us to provide our kids with a source they wanted to read, that they could understand, that we could trust. Kinooze intends to be that resource, online, for millions of kids and their families.
Kinooze was founded in 2012 with registered office in Bangalore, India.
