Empowering Rural Women Using BornFyne Mobile App

June 4 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Free

The second in a series of three BornFyne Satellite Events will be a workshop in Vancouver focused on demonstrating the features of the mobile application and how it works. The workshop will also address how mobile phones and e-vouchers empower rural women, how literacy gaps can be bridged using graphics and audio messages, and how illiteracy and financial status take power away from women. It will also highlight findings from the formative study used to build the BornFyne mobile app, including keys interviews, focus group discussions, and stakeholder meetings. The BornFyne app is a mobile application that provides pregnant women in Cameroon with quicker access to their doctors and medical care.
