Introducing Uridupedia Handouts

We keep getting feedback about people using our contents in many creative ways. This is something which we definitely encourage - and that's why we came up with our latest idea: Uridupedia Handouts.

Uridupedia is now available in Chinese

We have just published the Chinese version of Uridupedia, our compilation of vital knowledge for rural women. This is another major step in order to make this information available to as many women as possible.

Uridupedia is now available in Brazilian Portuguese

Yay! We just added the Brazilian Portuguese version of our Uridupedia to our mobile-friendly website URIDU.COM! This is the 9th language that we are covering to make vital knowledge accessible to rural women all over the world.

URIDU in the Press

We had quite a week with international media following up on our press release. Wow! We've seen news outlets picking it up and translating it into Chinese, Russian, German, French, Italian, Swedish and Portuguese. We are thankful and deeply impressed by the interest in our project!

Project Uganda - Let's build a future for Ugandan Children

2 million children in Uganda are chronically malnourished. 150.000 children in Uganda are suffering from AIDS. There is an effective way to help those children, simply by providing health education to their mothers. However, most rural women can't read or write - that's why we are using solar-powered MP3 Players that speak to them.

We are 10.000 Volunteer Translators!

Yay! We have reached the number of 10.000 volunteer translators! Thanks to everybody who is participating in the translation of our Uridupedia contents. Soon the translation for Russian and Chinese will be finished - and many more languages will follow.

Today we visited a women's shelter on the outskirts of Marrakech. They are doing a fantastic job by supporting and empowering women escaping violent or abusive situations, such as rape and domestic violence.
