Chiky is mobile application that target female youth in developing countries. It provides information on female reproductive health and other diseases affecting females, socio-cultural topics affecting women, access to female specialist clinics. Its also provides a forum where female can share their experience in life, relationships and at work place. Also the app provides information on where to get legal help.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

With women empowered in terms of information on their health, legal and the experience shared by other females we believe that it will help them know more about diseases that affect them and how it can be prevented,cured or treated, make informed decisions and also know where to legal advice.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Chiky is self funded. To sustain development of the product we intend to partner with advertising agencies who will advertise products specifically for women and children in the application. We will also partner with health organisation which focuses on women empowerment to provide us with content.
