About is a time-consuming intellectual labor of love headed by Mahmud (@Mojaam), a Kano-born, American-raised linguist.

The aim is to provide millions of Hausa and English speakers, and those with a bit of both (like myself), an effective, comprehensive, online resource that helps facilitate communication between one another all while cataloging and preserving the Hausa language at a time when there's not that many resources for the popular African language.

"Language resources don't just appear. People have to decide to create them, and those people need to be fed and watered and educated and housed and supported, whether that's by governments or by companies or by the kind of personal wealth that lets individuals take on time-consuming intellectual hobbies." --Linguist Gretchen McCulloch
