Grameen Foundation began working in India in 1998, supporting the expansion of micro finance services. Today, through Grameen Foundation India, we work with our partners to make health information and financial services more accessible to poor populations through the use of digital technology. We also support development in India through Grameen Capital India, which helps socially focused organizations get the capital they need to grow.
The penetration of mobile phones, especially in low-income rural households where literacy levels and financial literacy are very low, provides an opportunity to address the financial inclusion challenge. We do so in partnership with micro finance institutions, commercial banks, mobile network operators and others that play crucial roles in creating alternative paths to financial inclusion. Our current programs help micro finance institutions offer new products to clients, and develop new channels to connect clients to financial services, all with a focus on women in India’s poor rural communities.
Simultaneously, technology is transforming how health information and health services are delivered in under served communities. We have created a technology system that enables government agencies to strengthen maternal and infant health by giving front line health workers and women better access to vital information and services.
At Grameen Foundation India we work with our partners to make health information more accessible to the poor rural populations who have limited access to trained healthcare professionals and information on health conditions and services. We use digital technology to transform how health services and information are delivered to these
We work towards reducing inequality and poverty across the world. More than 1.2 billion people live on less than $ 1.25 a day in a developing nation and in collaboration with our partners we work to improve the lives of the people by addressing the challenges related to health and sanitation. We believe that all lives have equal value, and we can help reduce inequality and poverty. In collaboration with our partners, we are working to improve the lives of more than a billion people in India by addressing challenges related to health, sanitation, access to financial services, and agricultural development. Grameen Foundation India (GFI) aims to measurably improve the lives of India’s poor; increasing their incomes and enhancing their resilience by bringing practical innovations to scale with partners. We focus on innovations in mobile health and financial services and on supporting organizations in adopting a data-driven and client-centric approach to development.
In rural communities health care providers tend to have insufficient means to manage information on patients and staff, and to report to government health agencies, which weakens the overall health system. Grameen Foundation India works with poor households who are highly vulnerable to disease, debilitating emergencies, and significantly shortened life spans. We have created a technology system, MOTECH, which enables government agencies to strengthen maternal and infant health by giving frontline health workers and women better access to vital information and services.
