Dost parents are “aspirers” who come from low and pre-middle income households. They are the vegetable vendors, drivers, seamstresses, etc. in their communities.
Parents are already on their phones. Dost has witnessed the incredible rise of mobile use amongst even the lowest-income households.
less than a 5th grade education level
40% of Dost parents have less than a 5th grade level of education and an additional 30% of Dost parents have less than a 10th grade level of education. However, these same parents have college-level aspirations for their children.
