Hi Valeria,
I have looked at the FreshBiz website and these guys make a very convincing pitch for their products. I will follow them surely, but do they fit in your plans?

Robert commented on EMPOWER THE POWERLESS - The THRIVING KIDS CHALLENGE

The idea, rooted in our philosophy, is that the parents know best what it is they feel comfortable with and what ideas they can integrate in their life. Our job is to filter great ideas of social innovators (like presented on OpenIdeo) and give parents or groups of parents the tools, information and education to make their own choices.

We will discuss with parents (and innovators) to broaden their horizons, but in the end parents will only adopt the Porfolio-of-(their)-Best -Solutions.

Our job is to make it all happen and raise the money to finance the solutions.

"A child whose mother can read is 50% more likely to live past age 5".

Once the infrastructure is in its place, it becomes feasible to create and distribute educational reading course for parents (mothers).

I am not expert, but I would think twice of adding written materials. Will it not become much harder and costlier to expand to the corners of the world?

Anyway, I hope you become very successful.

Good luck,

Robert
