Every 6 seconds a child under 5 dies. Most of these deaths are entirely preventable. We could save millions of lives by providing illiterate mothers in developing countries with accessible health education.
But how can you efficiently provide vital information to rural areas that have no electricity but a high rate of illiteracy? Our answer is: with an audiobook in the mother language of those women. And with accessible technology like solar-powered MP3 players and mobile phones.
Our free and open source Uridupedia audiobook contains more than 400 relevant questions and answers about health, nutrition, family planning, child care and more. This equals 12 hours of spoken text. All contents have been developed by experts and most of them have been used in humanitarian work for more than 30 years.
For the first time ever we are able to provide health information to literally every rural woman in the world. No matter where she lives, what language she speaks or whether she can read or not - we can help her and her family to live a healthier and happier life.
This is a community effort which involves more than 15.000 volunteers worldwide. Most of them help us translate the contents into almost 100 languages. We'd love to count you in.
