This project aims to improve health and well-being of HIV-positive women and girls using Mobikits
Our work using Mobikits in Kenya’s Kibera slum delivered health care to HIV-positive women and their babies. Grand Challenges Canada supported our collaborative effort with ChildsLife Kenya. We plan to help hundreds more, and if you are searching for thoughtful gifts for loved ones or planning a yearend donation to a great cause, please consider making a gift today to Last Mile4D.
A “V-Pack” is a backpack equipped with solar cells that power a high-definition camera and a tablet loaded with software running an information, communication technology (ICT) secure online portal/app for peer-to-peer dissemination of educational material.
Last Mile4D is collaborating with World Pulse to empower their Impact Leaders, who live and work in the world's most remote areas to provide access to knowledge and information using the “V-Pack” to reach thousands of women who lack dependable sources of electricity. The secure online portal/app is designed for the Impact Leaders to easily access training materials and information to create a greater impact on the delivery of their work to women across the world.
