OpenIDEO is fabulous platform for collaborating new crowd-source ideas to address some of the world's most troubling problems. Next2.us has been participating in challenge to come up with new ways to improve maternal health. The 285 initial inspirations where reduced to 182 concepts. Community members, OpenIDEO and challenge sponsors Oxfam and Nokia then voted on the top 20.
We are very pleased and want to thank the community and sponsors for selecting Next2.us Global Village Supporting New Mothers concept as one of the top 20. We are looking forward to working with all finalists, community members, sponsors and OpenIDEO to further refine our concepts for possibly implementation by the sponsors.
Congratulations to all finalists! Looking foward to working with you.
