IMPACT

At Amplio, we work with our global partners and network affiliates to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by bridging the knowledge gap for the hardest to reach populations: those living in remote areas who face poverty, low literacy, and the impacts of gender inequity.

Using Talking Books to support the global goals

Amplio’s technology empowers the world’s most vulnerable communities to access knowledge they can use to improve their health, income, and quality of life. Talking Book programs are being used to support a range of Sustainable Development Goals, including:

IMPROVING MATERNAL HEALTH IN KENYA

CBCC, Amplio’s affiliate in Kenya, is using Talking Books to support community health volunteers (CHVs) and strengthen social and behavior change outcomes for maternal and child health.

Community health volunteers in Kenya used Talking Books to share consistent, quality maternal and child health information more efficiently and effectively with 31,154 households and more than 155,770 people in Samburu County, resulting in:

In September 2018, UNICEF Ghana’s Talking Book program expanded to 30 community health centers to reach an additional 63,000 listeners per month. Literacy Bridge Ghana partnered with Winrock International to conduct a baseline survey for a Talking Book program to educate climate-impacted communities about sustainable agriculture and natural resource management.

PROMOTING HYGIENE AND SANITATION IN GHANA

Amplio partnered with UNICEF and ARM to use Talking Books to inform 44,000 people in 49 communities in Ghana’s Upper West Region on a range of health and hygiene topics, including the benefits of hand washing with soap.
