In Zambia, where reading materials in the local language are scarce, a model is being tested by Creative Associates International to use SMS, IVR and radio to collect folktales and stories from the community and regularly distribute selected edited stories via similar technology means to parents of early grade children to cost effectively make relevant and fresh local language reading materials available in homes. Makhalidwe Athu, meaning “The way we live” in Chinyanja, is a winner of the All Children Reading Innovation grant and other distinctions. This presentation will present the model and findings of an RCT that will conclude in early 2017, and engage in discussion with audience about applicability in other contexts and fields.
