We achieve this by designing, manufacturing and distributing solar and wind-up media players and radios for classroom and group listening.
Emergencies, whether natural disasters or man-made conflicts, devastate the lives of survivors. People turn to radio for trusted information. Displaced children can keep learning via our Lifeplayer MP3s.
LIFT (Lifeplayer Taonga) is the name of the three-year research project being undertaken by Santa Clara University’s Center for Science, Technology and Society and Zambian Open University on behalf of Lifeline Energy and Zambia’s Educational Broadcasting Service.
It can be pre-loaded with 64GB of content, making it ideal for classrooms, women’s listening groups or even in disaster situations.
Since 1999 more than 550,000 of our radios have been distributed into humanitarian initiatives reaching many millions of listeners.
This year’s festivities were bigger and better, with more people joining in and celebrations spreading to Taipei! 2013 even witnessed our US ambassador Tom Hanks tweeting about the celebrations and sending a personal video message from his Broadway dressing room.
Our Prime radios are helping to inform and educate women and children in the world’s largest refugee camp – Dadaab in Kenya.
Help secure a Zambian child’s future by donating a Lifeplayer and providing education access to the remarkable Taonga Market radio school initiative.
“I saw immediately the impact such a radio could have on impoverished peoples in Africa and the world.” Tom Hanks
