How can I build opencv-python for android?

Hello everyone.
Hope you are having a great day.
I’m trying to build a pip package for andorid where I can use opencv on my phone.
I noticed its possible and packages such as pydroid3 on GooglePlay have done this, but they charge money to access opencv.
I gave it a search and found an old article here which doesnt work now.
could anyone kindly help us on this?
would it not be a good idea to publish a standalone python package for android as well by OpenCV foundation? like it does for all other platforms such as linux, windows, etc?

Thanks a lot in advance
