Job Vacancy For Finance and Administrative Assistant At Literacy Bridge Ghana (Wa, Upper West Region)



At Literacy Bridge Ghana, our mission is to use information and communication technology (ICT) for development, with particular focus on health, education, and income. We help others overcome poverty through village access to on-demand knowledge.

We acknowledge that a wealth of crucial knowledge is already available throughout the rural districts of Ghana; the problem is connecting that knowledge with people who lack literacy skills and live without electricity. We address this problem with a simple and low-cost audio technology: the Talking Book. We designed the Talking Book to address the short and long-term needs of those we serve: it gets vital knowledge into their hands immediately while enabling them to practice and improve their literacy skills over time.

Currently, we focus on agricultural skills and health behaviors that are designed specifically for the needs of community members in rural villages in the Upper West Region. By providing on demand access to audio lessons on these subjects, we have shown an increase in incomes and an increase in behaviors that lead to lower mortality rates.
