Bridging the Digital Divide

Our solution is the Amplio Talking Book—a rugged, easy to use, battery-powered audio device. With the Talking Book, you can deliver hours of local language audio content. Users can select and play messages on demand and record their feedback. A built-in speaker lets families and groups listen and learn together.

Amplio Talking Book set
“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 digital 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.”

Evaluating VSO Zambia’s TALK II project and impact on adolescent sexual health

Evaluating VSO Zambia’s TALK II project and impact on adolescent sexual health

In Zambia, Amplio partnered with Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) and Arm on the Adolescent TALK II project — a community-focused intervention to challenge existing taboos and empower young people to make informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). As part of a multi-layered approach, community volunteers and  peer educators used the Amplio Talking Book to share consistent, accurate, and relevant SRHR information. A recent external evaluation showed the project had a positive impact, increasing access to SRHR knowledge for youth and their families.

Partnering with CARE to fight poverty by empowering women and girls

Partnering with CARE to fight poverty by empowering women and girls

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.
