Village HopeCore International is a non-profit that operates just outside of Nairobi, Kenya. Their mission is community development through public health and micro-enterprise/income generation.
Health eVillages partnered with Village HopeCore in 2017 by providing 7 tablets for their nursing staff. These tablets have been utilized for community education as well as a data collection tool. Some tablets have been used to communicate with health care professionals in the United States for telemedicine consultations. In addition to using tablets for a sexual/reproductive health curriculum, Village HopeCore is also turning their attention to the suicide prevention of secondary school aged children, where there is an abnormally high rate of mental health problems.
