Introducing WaterAid Voices, a ground-breaking educational experience for Amazon Alexa devices.

WaterAid Voices

WaterAid Voices is an interactive storytelling experience that helps you learn about life in another land – a country rich with wildlife and culture, but missing three important things: clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

Take a journey through sound to the Madagascan village of Tsarafangitra. Through a series of six fun interactive voice messages, you will learn some handy phrases in the local language, recipes in Malagasy cuisine and how to spot a zebu through quizzes and mini-games.

Ernest, part of the WaterAid team in Madagascar, has visited Tsarafanigtra lots of times over the past few years. This time, he brought a recorder to capture the sounds of daily life in the community just for this skill.

From the calls of wildlife to the hubbub of kitchen at dinner time, our Alexa skill will let you fully immerse yourself in the sounds and stories of Malagasy life.
