Internet Not Required
How many times have you heard of revolutionary new apps and programs for the rural poor that are great- except for the fact that they require internet access?
After years of working in impoverished rural communities, we know that internet access is the least of community worries. Finally, we have what we’ve all been waiting for – application programs that work offline from internet access!
Specifically developed for rural areas that lack internet service, these programs are the result of collaborative efforts with Santa Clara University School of Engineering, SCU Frugal Innovation Labs and SCU College of Arts & Sciences.
Now you can teach community members vital information about feminine healthcare with our Hedhi Help and OmwanaThrive programs. Our primary objective is to educate the rural woman about hygiene and sanitation to reduce the high mortality rates of infants and children.
