W5Go Free Educational Apps for Social Edification!
If you have checked the app stores lately looking for a fun, educational and safe app for your toddler you might see a lot of apps “designed for children” are full of in-app purchases, advertisements and are missing educational content.
Each episode of W5Go is carefully designed for children 5-8. Our main focus is to get children excited about learning. We want them to run from our app excited to tell their parents, friends, and teachers what they have learned.
Our apps have a unique layout compared to others designed for children. We have episodes teaching children various topics, followed by games to help children retain what they just learned.
We believe in having an equal balance between work and play! In our newer apps, you need to play through the episodes/ lessons before unlocking related games.
We are part of a social edification project by QiiQ this allows us to create apps that are Ad-Free and offer freemium content while being primarily funded by QiiQ and grants. We understand many are unable to afford apps which is why we designed W5Go to be able to unlock all features by playing through the app. If you would like to unlock games faster a $0.99 Star pack is available for purchase, to contribute or donate to W5Go development please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We refer to each app as a “Season” and each season has several “Episodes” related to the main topic. For example, our season healthy kids have three episodes.

QiiQ for Social Edification™, a new category defined and championed by QiiQ.
W5Go is a project for social edification created by QiiQ. W5Go aims to encompass as many of theUnited Nations Sustainable Development goals as possible with every episode we release. So far our episodes, blog posts, youtube videos, and social media have targeted five of the seventeen sustainable development goals.
We believe everyone deserves the right to a quality education no matter their circumstances. W5Go’s mobile episodes and videos are created for the audience of children aged 3-7. They are easy enough for a child to follow on their own without parental guidance.
We thoroughly research all of our applications to create fun educational content for children to learn and explore. Within every app, we choose a topic and ask the children the W5 to encourage them to think and question what they are seeing. We then ask them to dig deeper by asking questions like “What if?” and “Why not?” W5Go believes you can always push boundaries and learn more. By asking “What if?” and “Why not” it opens doors to your imagination which intern sparks innovation. Each episode teaches 20+ English words through voice-overs, text, and animations for fun interactive learning.
Most of our applications have virtual and augmented reality experiences. Due to the rapid growth of technology, we want to gradually introduce children to modern technology. We use smartphones to portray these experiences, no fancy headsets required, just a smartphone with a gyroscope and a back-camera. Also, for young children to use technology, not using a headset is much safer as there are still aware of the environment around them. W5Go believes children from all walks of life should be able to experience the newest technology.
All of our applications are free to downloads, free from ads, no in-app purchase and do not require wifi after the initial download. W5Go wants to make it as simple as possible to get the educational tools to children to see them succeed.
A major concern in society today is gender equality. W5Go works to create episodes that are as gender neutral as possible. We want to teach children to respect one another no matter their gender, race or sexuality. At the moment we care carefully crafting an episode and song about bullying, in which we wish to teach children the importance of thinking before you speak or act.
Peace and Justice Strong Institutions
We try to include the peace and justice strong institutions goal in our apps by promoting children to have integrity. So they can understand what is right and wrong, and stand up for injustices when they encounter them. We believe by teaching these morals at a young age, children will grow up with a strong moral compass. Children are our future we must teach them what we know and let them learn from our mistakes. Some of these children will grow into powerful roles within companies and countries, having a strong sense of integrity is very beneficial.
Good Health and Well-Being
Across many of our episodes, we try to educate children on good health and well-being. In our Forest episode, we show how beneficial taking a walk through a forest can be for your mental health. We also focus on our blog to give tips on how to handle stress and Our episode Dialogues shows a Grandma talking to her grandson about the importance of a healthy hygiene routine.
Knowledge is power! W5Go’s objective is to bring children to an even playing field when it comes to education when in or starting kindergarten or preschool. We want to make education available to everyone in any situation.
We believe education is the key to ending poverty. When people are educated they have more opportunities to advance in their lives and career. Everyone should have an equal chance to excel, no matter their environmental upbringing. W5Go wants to give children the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty. This is why all of our applications are free to download, have no in-app purchases, no advertisements and do not require wifi.
How do we do it?
We’re often asked, “Where do we make money?” or “How do we afford to make these applications”
We are a social edification project headed and funded by QiiQ, a wholesale carrier voice service provision and managed services for retail telecom service providers. W5Go is a project created by and managed by Carl KS Teo, CEO & Founder of QiiQ.
This is all done for social good!
