Expanding the Literacy Boost Project

Next Stop: Ethiopia


This October, One Media Player per Teacher will be in Ambo, Ethiopia
expanding our collaboration with Save the Children for their Literacy
Boost Project.

It is a truly transformative program, which not only teaches children
basic reading skills, but involves the schoolteachers and communities
as well.  We will hold our Video Education Workshop, training two
dozen Save the Children staff members to magnify the impact of their
intervention by integrating video.

OMPT has worked with Save the Children staff from Mozambique, Kenya,
Malawi, and Nepal. Check out our video below from our latest trip to
Mozambique, where one of the staff members commented:

"With these machines (pico projectors) I think it can reduce the
costs because from now, it's possible to train the communities in
their own communities."

The Pico Projector: A Lightweight Alternative to a TV

Highlighting our work with Digital Study Hall

OMPT introduced pico projectors to Digital Study Hall as an
alternative for the TVs they had been using to disseminate
educational lessons in schools.

Anna,  from the Digital Study Hall office in Lucknow, India said:

"This could do exactly the same thing as all of my hundreds of pounds
of equipment...they do seem sort of like a miracle because they are
not only lightweight but user friendly."

OMPT supplied the non profit with several lightweight and affordable
projectors, which are more efficient especially in rural areas
without electricity.  They can easily be charged with a solar panel.
