Every year, 5.9 million children worldwide die before their fifth birthday. Many of them from entirely preventable or easily treatable causes. Diarrhea alone kills 2195 children every day—more than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined.

However, many women happen to live in remote rural areas in developing countries. They do not have access to electricity, let alone TV or radio. And worst of all: most of them cannot read or write. So how do you provide them with basic, but vital information about health, child care, family planning and other essential topics?
