We are thrilled to announce that Arogya World’s mDiabetes project has been selected as a finalist in the Vodafone Mobile for Good Awards 2013 in India. Through a partnership between Vodafone Foundation and the Digital Empowerment Foundation, these Awards, for the third year in a row, aim to recognize the best mobile innovations that drive social change and improve lives, within the social sector in India.
Through our mDiabetes project we are doing just that. In 12 different languages, we are encouraging people in India through compelling and informative text messaging to make healthy lifestyle changes and prevent diabetes and other NCDs.
A funding of Rs 4 million will be granted to 4 leading NGOs which demonstrate the best practice in mobile innovation in the areas of Health, Education, Governance and Business.
We are one of 16 finalists going to the awards gala on July 18th in Delhi. We will report the results!
