During this webinar, participants will learn about the challenges and lessons learned in doing community outreach when communities are illiterate. German NGO, URIDU, will share their experience of working with audio content to share vital knowledge to illiterate rural women. Participants will also learn about a new project launched by the organisation called Audiopedia, plus how to access and contribute to this project.


URIDU is a German NGO that provides illiterate rural women with vital knowledge. URIDU develops and pioneers accessible audio learning in the global south. They do it by combining relevant, localised expert audio content with easily usable hardware and software.
