Her Voice: Audio Learning in Kenya

Socio-economic, cultural and religious biases have put pastoral women on the margins in Kenya’s climate-fragile, arid north. Subjected to harmful cultural practices (female genital mutilation/forced early marriage) and a lack of access to healthcare and education, illiteracy levels of 90% are common. Leveraging traditional community structures like women’s self-help groups and savings clubs, Lifeline Energy is helping to open up their world with sustainable access to new knowledge. Financial literacy, maternal health, livestock and farming info is recorded, in their language, onto memory cards via solar MP3 players designed for group use.
