Summary

200 million women in India are illiterate. With devastating consequences for their lives and the lives of their children. Audiopedia was created to overcome this. Audiopedia is a free, open resource of localized expert audio contents tailored to the needs of rural women. It's easily accessible using solar-powered audio players or mobile phones. By providing our audio health contents in the 11 most prominent languages in India we can reach out to 537 million women in their mother tongue.

Challenge

Every 6 seconds a child under 5 dies. Most of these deaths are entirely preventable. We could save millions of lives by providing illiterate mothers in India with accessible health education. Hundreds of millions of women and girls are denied their right to education, effectively preventing their empowerment. For the sake of justice, we have to right this wrong. It is a requirement of fairness to make knowledge and information accessible to each and every woman, better today than tomorrow.

Solution

Audiopedia.io is a unique platform providing expert health education and life skills for women using audio. The site has been designed to provide access to open knowledge to both NGOs and individuals. NGOs can benefit by using Audiopedia.io as part of their communication efforts, as it enables them to search, download, embed and share audio files. The languages we would address are Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, Gujarati, Urdu, Kannada, Odia, Malayalam and Punjabi.

Long-Term Impact

Access to knowledge and information is a basic human right. It is intrinsically linked to the realization of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5: Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women and Girls. More than 26.000 registered NGOs provide health education in India, a country with 200 million illiterate women. All of those NGOs can benefit from Audiopedia. Our long-term goal is to provide every single woman with free, accessible health education. No matter whether she can read or not.
