The organization: The Open Institute is a non-governmental and not-for-profit organization that envisions Cambodia as a country in which widespread access to high quality education, information, communication, and technology lead to a more developed and just society. The mission of the organization is to ensure that the benefits of technology for social and economic advance are usable in Cambodian society.
The relationship: With funding from the SPIDER center, we provided technical consulting and developed an interactive voice response (IVR) service which compliments their existing work. Through a customized version of Verboice, the Women’s Media Center is implementing a series of mobile-based information telephone hotlines, scheduled advice services and question boxes for women that complement and extend their current work. Through a customized version of Verboice , women and children will be able to access on demand health information services, therefore increasing their awareness and understanding of health issues that affect them.
