Hello @Ashley Tillman, thank you for creating time to talk to us.
I can confirm the journey has not been easy, we have faced several challenges but the good thing is that we have learnt alot.
One of the major challenge is level of literacy and mobile phone penetration. We found that most target mothers could only speak local language and to solve this we had to get people from the local community to translate sms messages to local language.
Other mothers did not have a mobile phone neither did their next of kin had, to solve this we are enhancing the system to send clinic reminders to community health worker incharge of the mother village, the health worker will also be notified when a mother within her area defaults.
Others challenges included; mothers expecting payment from us, some health workers not cooperating, harsh weather conditions, sometimes had to travel long distances among many others.

Hope I have answered your question? Feel free to request for further clarifications.

Thanks

Hey @Viraj Sikad, Great idea right there, I have been referred by @Nicholas Sylvester to your idea.
I have an idea on worms "Green Worms" and I hope we can work together in collaboration to take our ideas to greater heights.
