Give the Gift of Knowledge, Today

It takes a village to raise a child but it takes your donation to provide the village with the know-how.


No Electricity, No Literacy

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.


The Talking Book Program

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.

How You Can Help

Help families and children receive life-saving and life-changing information. This year our goal is to reach 10,000 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 in most need.
