About Audiopedia

Audiopedia is an open-source audible learning platform that provides women and girls in developing countries with essential knowledge that saves lives and expands opportunities. By making basic education free and accessible to nonreaders, we can increase gender equality and empower women and girls to realize their worth.

Literacy is a fundamental human right, yet nearly 500 million women can neither read nor write. Women and girls in developing countries face greater gender inequalities due to a lack of basic education. This disparity feels big because it is. The implications of a woman’s inability to learn are significant and far-reaching. With technology, we can change this.

Audiopedia is an innovative global initiative whose core objective is to unlock the potential of women and girls around the world. By making audio learning free and accessible to nonreaders in developing countries, we can quickly and effectively close the gender knowledge gap.

There are many ways to join our open-source audible education movement, and your level of participation as an Audiopedia Ally is entirely up to you. Empower women and girls today, and see how our world improves tomorrow.

There are many things in this world we can't control, but we refuse to sit back and do nothing about the things we can. Today, literacy rates in developing countries are slowly improving. Women, however, continue to make up two-thirds of the world's population that cannot read or write. This is why Audiopedia exists.

Founded by the non-profit organization URIDU, which empowers rural women in developing and emerging countries, Audiopedia is taking immediate action to support women's audible education. Without access to basic knowledge on health, nutrition, family planning, childcare, work, etc. the gender gap widens, and our world's potential remains largely untapped.

Women and girls hold the key to our future. Audiopedia opens the door.
