Reviews for Literacy Bridge
Literacy Bridge and their Talking Book approach is an innovative and powerful way to provide key information to rural people in developing countries like Ghana. It covers many subjects like health and agricultural innovations and can be used for recording local responses and comments in whatever local languages are used. I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Ghana and I can see the huge advantage of this technology. I also think their lean management structure ensures that my money goes further than most charities.

I have both volunteered and donated to Literacy Bridge for the past 3 years. Cliff Schmidt, the Founder and ED, and his team at Literacy Bridge are making a tremendous difference everyday in some of the poorest parts of the world. Their solution: a simple, yet powerful, technology called the 'Talking Book," which provides an innovative and unique way to fix a problem faced in many poor, rural communities -- the people who live there lack access to vital knowledge needed to better their lives. We love getting updates from Cliff and the team about how the Talking Book is helping to improve the health, education, and economic outcomes of people in some of the most vulnerable populations across the globe.
