At Korembi, we embark on a mission that goes beyond business – we are a passionate community dedicated to preserving endangered languages. Our innovative approach involves developing software that connects native speakers worldwide, providing them with an additional income source while preserving their mother tongue. Korembi is not just a startup; it's a movement, and our mantra is simple: "Education, not extinction."
The Urgency of Language Preservation:
In a world with 7,000 languages, it's alarming that 2,500 of them are endangered. The grim reality is that nine languages face extinction every year. The significance of language preservation cannot be overstated, as each language carries a unique cultural identity and a rich tapestry of traditions.
The Power of Secondary Languages:
While many people speak a secondary language, it's essential to recognize the value of preserving and promoting linguistic diversity. Secondary languages play a crucial role in fostering cross-cultural communication, enriching global interactions, and enhancing cognitive abilities.
Statistics to Consider:
- Over 40% of the world's population is estimated to be bilingual or multilingual.
- Learning a second language has been linked to improved problem-solving skills and a better understanding of different perspectives.
- Multilingualism is associated with cognitive benefits, including enhanced creativity and adaptability.

Korembi aims to address the decline of endangered languages by creating a platform that empowers native speakers. Our software facilitates connections between language enthusiasts globally, fostering a supportive community that values the richness of linguistic diversity.
