Provides communication technologies to enable governments and global development organizations to share knowledge with the world’s hardest to reach communities
Amplio is a Seattle-based nonprofit founded in 2007 by Cliff Schmidt. The company, formerly know as Literacy Bridge, provides inclusive digital technology to help governments and global organizations widen their reach and impact in rural, remote, off-grid communities. With the company's rugged, easy-to-use Talking Book audio device, organizations can provide access to information that enables low-literate adults and youth to gain new skills and knowledge to improve their livelihoods and lives. Amplio partners with organizations like UNESCO, USAID, World Vision, and the World Bank; governments; and local NGOs. They have developed partnerships in Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Uganda, Zambia, and beyond.
