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 developing countries with accessible health education.
To this end, URIDU has developed an audiobook in the mother language of those mothers. And with accessible technology like solar-powered MP3 players and mobile phones. The Uridupedia audiobook contains more than 400 relevant questions and answers about health, nutrition, family planning, child care and more. This equals 12 hours of spoken text. All contents have been developed by experts and most of them have been used in humanitarian work for more than 30 years.
This the approach has been implemented successfully in East Africa, and URIDU organization is now looking for partners in the MENA region.
