Amplio’s easy-to-use Talking Book audio device enables governments and development organizations to provide access to information in hard to reach communities. With the Talking Book, low-literate people can play messages in their local language on demand and record their feedback. A built-in speaker lets families and groups listen and learn together. The technology collects usage data, which helps Talking Book partners monitor program engagement, identify issues, and update their content for greater impact.
In September 2019, the UN Secretary-General called on all sectors of society to mobilize for a decade of action for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on all 17 SDGs has shown that what began as a health crisis has quickly become a human and socio-economic crisis.
An ambitious global effort is underway to deliver the 2030 promise—by mobilizing more governments, civil society, businesses and calling on all people to make the Global Goals their own. Through partnerships with UNESCO, the World Bank, UNICEF, and others, Amplio aims to reach 10 million people in the next 10 years to help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
