About Us

The Company

PortableVoices is the pioneering publisher of premium African audiobooks and radio dramas with the aim to promote access to information in Africa and make learning fun and interactive through high quality engaging spoken entertainment and educational programming.

Our Mission: Sharing Knowledge

Africa has a rich heritage of great stories archived in both written and spoken form. Since the beginning of time, we have always made sense of the world and ourselves through stories told around fires, cooking pots and under trees. Storytelling has been the way we communicate and share experiences, nature moral behaviors, and record moments.

However following​ ​new​ ​technological​ ​advancements, the​ ​rise​ ​of​ ​Internet,​ ​and​ ​daily​ ​busy​ ​routines,​ ​time​ ​to​ ​read​ ​is​ ​becoming​ ​more​ ​and more​ ​limited and dissemination of local African stories throughout the continent and beyond has proven difficult.

While long commutes and office hours,  new emphasis on working out, and visual impairment leaves people with little time and/or no option to read a physical book, audio programs offer people a way to still access these​ ​stories.

We​​ ​reduce​ ​the​ ​information​ ​gap,​ ​build​ ​capacity​ and entertain ​through​ ​interactive educational​ ​audio​ ​programming​. We believe passionately in the power of audio as a medium of sharing knowledge.

Our aim is to be the most accessible portable library of interactive African stories that promote African literature and cultures.
