FOR THE WORLD’S MOST VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES, KNOWLEDGE IS A TOOL TO TRANSFORM LIVES

Amplio’s technology, programs, and affiliates help our global partners share new skills and knowledge in communities where literacy and electricity are as scarce as money.

Our global partners face barriers to shariNG knowledge with remote communities

Around the world, NGOs, governments, and businesses are working to end global poverty and achieve the United Nation’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. But they often face barriers to reaching the most underserved communities. Without the right tools, our global partners are limited in their ability to “reach the furthest behind first.”

OUR technology solution can amplify your reach

We help our partners amplify their messages and widen their reach to address critical human needs. Our simple technology solution is built around the Talking Book — a rugged, easy-to-use audio device designed specifically for people who cannot read and who live without electricity in the rural and remote areas. Our affiliates provide program services, including content creation, technology support, and performance analytics to promote social and behavior change.

BRIDGE THE KNOWLEDGE GAP

Use Talking Books to share vital messages and information with people who can’t read, including women and girls. Use knowledge to help those in rural and remote communities improve their health, income, and quality of life.

UNLEASH THE POWER OF LEARNING

Provide a library of engaging, culturally relevant audio content in local languages. Deliver songs, dramas, interviews, and endorsements that listeners can select, replay, or share and discuss in group settings.

MONITOR AND IMPROVE PROGRAMS

Use performance analytics, including usage data and user feedback, to monitor programs. Update content to ensure greater outcomes, while gaining a deeper understanding of the issues that communities face.
“Ingeniously engineered (and re-engineered) to meet specific needs and usage scenarios in very poor communities.”

 

Michael Trucano, Senior ICT and Education Policy Specialist, World Bank

“The Talking Book’s simplicity is its greatest achievement. In an oral culture where words carry so much weight . . . it lends a unique and previously unattainable benefit to these communities.”

Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship

“An innovative use of low-cost, mobile technology to influence behaviors that impact the lives and opportunities of the most vulnerable children.”

 

Susan Namondo Nigong,
UNICEF Ghana Country Director (2013-2017)

“Our community health volunteers are delivering consistent, quality health information more efficiently and effectively.”

 

Catherine Mesianto Lengewe, Technical and Strategy Director,
Centre for Behavior Change and Communication

“People didn’t know about raising healthy children, but now they listen and learn. The fact that other mothers hear the same thing from the Talking Book, makes them take our efforts seriously and believe we are telling the truth.”

— Nadowli Kuubataanono, traditional birth assistant
