Dear poonam,

Join us for Grameen Foundation’s April 5th Gala in New York City and participate in a hands-on demonstration of our mobile phone-based work in Africa during the pre-dinner reception.

Imagine you’re in one of the most remote communities in the sub-Saharan Africa, and take on the role of a pregnant woman searching for information about her health, who now has a mobile phone service that calls her with targeted messages every week to guide her through her pregnancy.

Or, you might be a rural farmer who doesn’t know exactly when to plant her corn seeds or how to fight a crop disease, but with a mobile phone she now has that information and can find out where to get the best prices for her crops. Come experience the power of mobile phones to change lives and fight poverty at our April 5th Gala in New York City.

Click here for your special invitation and to buy tickets. We hope to see you there!
