The problem

In Guatemala, 48.3% of the rural population is engaged in agriculture.

46.5% of children under 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition.

In the Dry Corridor region, the poverty level exceeds 70%.

The solution

- A technological platform for sending multichannel content (SMS, voice, MMS, WhatsApp);

- A participatory content construction process to adapt information and training to local contexts and capacities, becoming a tool for social change.

- A monitoring tool for data collection and analysis taking advantage of lean data principles, achieving constant adaptation to complex and changing environments.
