Health & Agriculture Communication for Women & Children

Commitment by

Literacy Bridge

In 2011, Literacy Bridge committed to improve the health of 24,000 rural women and at-risk children in 75 low-literate communities across Ghana using a cost-effective behavior change program. Literacy Bridge strove to provide mothers with critical health behavior messages and farming best practices through Literacy Bridge's innovative Talking Book audio computer. By creating audio messages in local languages, Literacy Bridge aimed to address topics such as breastfeeding, hand-washing, and proper sowing of seeds for the most nutritious and lucrative crops.
