Lifeplayer Start and Lifeplayer Plus
With our Lifeplayer range of products, education and information becomes accessible on demand to anyone, anywhere, anytime. In schools with no electricity and few resources, students are able to listen to quality educational material. Teachers improve their skills through on-going training. In women’s listening groups, mothers hear health and nutrition messages. And farmers listen to agricultural updates and advice.
All this is possible by our power independent Lifeplayer, an MP3 player, radio and recorder. Using a microSD card, content is pre-loaded into the Lifeplayer at our factory or in the field, or downloaded from a mobile phone or computer. Important radio programs can be recorded for everyone to hear. Lessons, stories and songs can be listened to again and again. There’s no need for electricity or batteries, as the Lifeplayer is powered by the sun or a hand crank.
Designed in South Africa, the Lifeplayer has received a number of awards for product innovation.

Customised for you
On start-up, the LCD screen can display your logo and be pre-tuned to a radio station that ensures the intended programming is reaching listeners. Alternatively, the Lifeplayer can be programmed to start with an informative message, a local song or even a sponsor’s jingle.
