The Audiopedia Manifesto

Hundreds of millions of women and girls are denied their right to education, effectively preventing their empowerment.

In fact, the number of illiterate women worldwide has not decreased in the last thirty years.

For the sake of justice, we have to right this wrong.

It is a requirement of fairness to make knowledge accessible to each and every woman, better today than tomorrow. Access to knowledge is a fundamental human right.

Therefore we have to free knowledge from literacy.

For the first time ever we have the technologies to do this. We can turn accessible audio learning into a global driving force for women’s empowerment and gender equality.

Knowledge is power, open know­ledge is empowerment. Let’s create a world where open know­ledge empowers every woman, everywhere.

TO LOCAL, NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL LEADERS AND ORGANIZATIONS:

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.

We demand immediate and free access to knowledge and information for all women. Solutions to make this possible already exist.

Empower Women, Save the World.

Our future is at stake. Because men hold power while women are largely excluded from it. Hundreds of millions of women and girls are denied their right to education, effectively preventing their empowerment. Audiopedia was created to right this wrong.

Audiopedia is a free and open resource of audible knowledge tailored to the needs of illiterate rural women. And it's accessible virtually everywhere using solar-powered audio players, mobile apps and WhatsApp.  

Women are the key to sustainable development. That affects all of us. For this reason, Audiopedia was conceived as a global crowdimpact project. Everyone can be part of it. Are you in?
