People need to understand ways of getting themselves out of poverty, ways of ensuring their health is as good as it can be.

How can you help yourself and your family if:

  • your country has 13 local languages;
  • you don't speak English;
  • you can't read or write a language;
  • you don't have electricity and getting radio or television is a problem?

Cardiff University and University of Namibia are exploring exciting strategies to help people get the information they need to help themselves into a better life.
