Recycled Cell Phone Initiative

To better assist with community reminders for checkups, scheduling visits to clinics and registering births, this program provides cell phones that generate daily prompts via a SMS service. The cell phones enable community members to confirm relevant information via text and to receive additional data including health station locations, identifying displaced family members and activating emergency response systems. Through a domestic cell phone donation/recycling service, existing phones from developed nations are repurposed and equipped with hand crank charging systems for sustainable usage in diverse environments.
