Our Vision: accessible knowledge for all

Our Mission: Our mission is to significantly improve the health, income and quality of life for the world’s most underserved communities by providing life-changing knowledge through innovative technology.

What we do

We make access to knowledge and information through technology in the very best it can be for rural communities across Ghana.

Why we do it

We want to see the hard work of rural smallholders and their families lead to prosperity and food security, climate change, gender, improved health for themselves, their communities, and their countries. And we know that technology has a vital role to play in making this a reality.

Where we work

We work across Ghana to promote Sustainable Agriculture, Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience, Child and Maternal Health, Water and Sanitation Hygiene (WASH), Education, Child Protection, Gender and Women Empower, Rural Livelihood Improvement, Nutrition, Financial Literacy, Community Saving and Loan Association (CSLAs).

Literacy Bridge Ghana does not simply provide knowledge and information. We work in partnership with stakeholders, duty bearers, target groups and communities and with our partners to change social and behavioral norms in deeply rooted cultures that are sometimes harmful, social and cultural traditions, low or no literacy and high poverty, poor health systems and a high disease burden. We are not only concern with incremental change. We work to ensure that knowledge and information is accessible for all.

Our core values

Innovation: LBG is not partial to one communication method. We use what our long history of experiences tells us will work best with the people we need to reach the most. Staying on top of social trends, good community entry and an improved technology helps us provide timely, appropriate and meaningful knowledge and information to our audience.

Creativity: Literacy Bridge Ghana designs behavior change messages that empower our audience and characters that are memorable, using a blend of approaches including expert interviews, serial and mini dramas, local songs, influential and opinion leader endorsements, etc. to educate and inspire behavior change. Literacy Bridge Ghana often challenges the status quo with humor, emotion, drama and persuasion in our messaging.

Leadership: We are the pioneers in the field of social behavior change communication across broad sectors in Ghana.

Expertise: Literacy Bridge Ghana staff have fair knowledge about community development, behavior change communication design, implementation, research, monitoring and evaluation.
