Literacy Bridge was founded in 2007 to advance health, education, human rights and socioeconomic development. Its ‘Talking Book’ is a simple and low-cost audio-based mobile device that allows people with minimal literacy skills in rural areas, without electricity or internet access, to share knowledge on agriculture and health, as they gradually advance their literacy. Founder, software developer Cliff Schmidt, won the Microsoft Alumni Foundation Integral Fellow Award for his work, and is now a member of Clinton Global Initiative.
