Jonathan commented on Enhanced Kangaroo Mother Care

Hi Rahul,

I really like the idea peer teaching, from one mother to another. They will share empathetic view as to how to feed and care for their children correctly and safely.

Perhaps this could be implemented like a workshop in a community where mothers are encouraged to come along to teach and learn from each other. Would be a nice way to bring the community together and mothers can support one another

Jonathan commented on OMOMI Project UPDATED January 6th, 2015

This is great idea Emmanuel! It reminds me of health apps like 'mapmyrun' or 'myfitnesspal' where you can input data or data is recorded to provide useful health stats.

Perhaps you could look into these apps and use them as inspiration for your user interface. It would be nice to visually see beautiful charts and tables to inform the user about their child's health. Hopefully this would encourage people to stick with the app and continue to use it

Jonathan commented on Using Packaging for Education and Play

Great idea Maurizio! I think educating young children through packaging would be a nice way to reach out to many people at once.

Have you approached any brands about implementing your idea? Perhaps there are brands that are already doing charitable work for those living in deprived regions of the world that would be happy to work with you, and your team.

I also like the idea of approaching local supermarkets and re-packaging their 'own brand' products. You idea would also benefit local businesses if more people were to buy into products that educate :)
