News and Stories
Amplio has three new projects underway with CARE International — in Ethiopia, Haiti, and Bangladesh. This isn’t the first time we’ve partnered with CARE. The CARE Pathways Project (2014-2016), funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, used Talking Books to empower women farmers in northern Ghana to improve their food security, nutrition, and livelihoods. The three new projects will use Talking Books to share knowledge about agriculture, financial literacy, nutrition, maternal/child health, and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
