Women At Risk International Foundation (WARIF) founder, Dr. Kemi DaSilva, is doubling down on her passion to help vulnerable populations in rural Nigeria.

One year after launching a pioneering SMS service used by traditional birth attendants to fight gender-based violence in Nigeria, DaSilva was justifiably proud with the impressive results of the program, which she and Rohit Tripathi, head of products and go-to-market at SAP Digital Interconnect, detailed in this exclusive SAP News video interview. DaSilva credited the program’s success to its unique combination of education, community services, and mobile technology.
