It may have been a while since we last provided updates via our blog. In place of that effort, we have spent that time diligently improving our software and in-country partnerships. Thanks to that, we now have a team on the ground in Benin deploying a network of our systems in collaboration with the World Health Organization. We will be in the country for the next three weeks putting our systems in place and training health workers on the use of them. Be sure to keep an eye on our blog, find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. We will be posting updates and pictures as frequently as the temperamental internet allows.

Coming soon will be an overview of the project and an introduction to Benin. Before we get too far into the project though, I want to take the time to thank the many that have supported us. To our gracious financial backers, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Blue Sky Foundation and the many individual donors, let me just say that your decision to support our organization from the thousands of other options that exist out there is incredibly reaffirming of our work. You are directly responsible for improving the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in Benin.

To our Board members, thank you for your continued and unwavering leadership and guidance. And to our family and friends, sincere thanks for the moral support you have provided over the past few years. We could not be doing what we are doing without the help of each and every one of you.

You can get involved today and at a price far lower than the cost of a plane ticket to Benin. Help us spread the news of our work! For all you know, that single share on Facebook or that single retweet will help us get our work in front of a new donor or supporter. We have a powerful network or supporters today, and we would like your help growing that network.
