Connecting the Disconnected Using SMS to Reduce Sexual Violence Against Nigerian Women and Girls


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.
