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.
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!
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.
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.
We are happy to announce that we have been chosen as an official content provider to the Free Basics platform. Free Basics by Facebook is an app and mobile website that provides access to free basic internet services in markets where internet access may be less affordable.
Our mobile friendly webpage URIDU.COM is constantly growing. Women from more than 100 countries are easily accessing vital information from the site.
