From midnight to midnight (Pacific Time) on May 5th, The Seattle Foundation will host its fifth annual GiveBIG. We are excited to announce that Literacy Bridge has been selected by Global Washington and Seattle International Foundation (SIF) to receive a special challenge grant because of our dedication in working to improve lives in rural Africa.
It takes a village to raise a child, but it takes your donation to provide the village with the skills to do that. Contributions from individual donors like you are critical to the success of our programs. Help turn our vision into effective, tangible, and scalable solutions for the world’s poorest families.
UNICEF and ARM partner with Literacy Bridge to help fund Health Behavior Change Program. This multi-year program will use Talking Books to reduce preventable deaths in impoverished rural communities in Ghana while improving the health of pregnant women and mothers of young children.
Try to imagine life without searching online, watching TV, talking on the phone, or even having a local library to visit. How would you get by? Where would you turn to learn new information? Amazingly, this is the reality for millions of people.
Literacy Bridge saves lives and improves the livelihoods of impoverished families through comprehensive programs that provide on-demand access to locally relevant knowledge. At the heart of the programs is the Talking Book, an innovative low-cost audio computer.
Help families and children receive life-saving and life-changing information. This year our goal is to reach 40,000 people through programs, like our comprehensive maternal and child health program†designed to dramatically reduce†the†high number of†deaths of pregnant women and young children from preventable causes, like malnutrition,†diarrhea and malaria.
People, like you, have supported our efforts with gifts of time, talent and financial support since our inception in 2007. Your contribution is needed now more than ever to ensure that the Talking Book Program continues to serve those most in need.
