Amplio (formerly Literacy Bridge) is a U.S.-based nonprofit organization committed to sharing knowledge with the world’s hardest-to-reach communities, so that people in developing countries have the power to transform their lives.
Our durable Talking Book audio device is designed for off-the-grid, low-literacy communities, where people speak local languages or dialects. We amplify the impact of our global partners, and the voices of the communities we serve, through our innovative technology, Talking Book programs, and a network of affiliates who provide in-country training and support.
Since 2007, Talking Books have reached nearly 500,000 people in rural and remote African communities – from farmers in Northern Ghana, to Burundian refuges in Rwanda, to mothers in Kenya. Together with our partners we strive to build a world where the knowledge required to end poverty and improve lives reaches those who need it, no matter where they live.
