“As we embark on this great collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind… And we will endeavor to reach the furthest behind first.” —UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Of everything in the UN 2030 Agenda, reaching those who are the furthest behind is one of the most important points for Amplio. For the last 12 years, we have used the Talking Book to address the Sustainable Development Goals by providing access to information for vulnerable communities. Talking Book messages inspire listeners to improve food security and nutrition, stay in school, seek antenatal care, and adopt life-saving hygiene and sanitation practices.
Throughout December, during our Talking Book Journey campaign, we shared stories from Talking Book users whose lives were changed by the knowledge they gained. You can click through the slideshow below to read them. We think you’ll be inspired!
What’s next on the Talking Book journey?
Over the past decade, Amplio has been able to create local partnerships in Ghana, Kenya, and Rwanda to reach over 600,000 people. Now our goal is to reach millions more. In 2020, we’re developing new partnerships in Zambia, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Africa, Nigeria, Senegal, Somalia, Uganda, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Bangladesh, and Nepal.
Happy New Year from the Amplio team!
2019 was a year of growth for Amplio’s small but mighty team, and we’re looking forward to an even bigger 2020. We are grateful for all of our Talking Book friends, partners, and supporters who make this work possible. Thank you for joining us on this collective journey. May the new year bring you great peace, joy, prosperity, health, and wild possibility!
