How can you efficiently provide vital information to rural areas that have no electricity but a high rate of illiteracy? Our answer is: with a rugged, solar powered audio-player. This is why we developed the MP3forLife Player.
The MP3forLife Player contains more than 400 relevant questions and answers about health, nutrition, family planning, child care, work and more. The texts are recorded by a native speaker in the mother tongue of the women addressed. The MP3forLife Player was conceived for small group listening - it therefore fosters discussion, exchange and (self-help) group building. It's a tool for change.
We provide the MP3forLife Player free of charge to rural women with the help of local non-government organizations (NGOs), cooperatives and other agencies.
For the first time ever we are able to provide this information to literally every rural woman in the world. No matter where she lives, what language she speaks or whether she can read or not - we can help her and her family to live a healthier and happier life.
