Distribution Agreements: Distribution agreements secured to reach new regions, addressing more than 100 million people. In addition to receiving support from India’s National AIDS Control Organization, we have received government approvals across all 4 states in which these languages are most prominent. The states of Karnataka, Odisha, Assam, and Tamil Nadu have committed to distribute between 20,000-30,000 copies of the animated software across their schools, colleges, hospitals, counseling facilities, and NGOs — for free. In addition, a number of television stations have agreed to televise the animations to educate the masses. Aside from paid staff who have been working around the clock, more than a million dollars worth of person hours were donated this year by hundreds of researchers, language experts, production staff, programmers, animators, artists, among others, to develop these materials for those who need them most. We dedicate this year’s success to our dear friend and co-founder, Professor Clifford Nass (Apr. 1958- Nov. 2013). It is his brilliance that gave birth to TeachAIDS and allows us to shine, and it is through his teachings that millions will continue to learn.
