What three characteristics or qualities do you prioritize in working relationships/partnerships?






Will support from American Express be focused on your organization overall or a specific product/service? Please describe.

Support from American Express will be focused on our organization overall – helping us to expand and articulate our exciting work so that we can engage with an international audience of supporters.

Have you focused on the above area previously? If so, please explain, including whether you have worked with outside consultants before.

We have not worked with outside consultants on the area of a digital marketing plan. Our current digital marketing is performed by me – founder and CEO.

Are you able to commit 3-5 hours/wk over 10-12 weeks?

Rank your three intended outcomes of this project:

Develop a robust and interesting mobile platform


Clearly articulate our brand through digital channels


Expand our network of supporters and enthusiasts through improved use of social media

What has been the impact of your solution to date?

In our first year of operation we served nearly 14,000 patients – and the even better news is that women and mothers are coming back with their children for their recommended wellness visits. This type of successful preventative care is nearly unheard of in the developing world. We believe our unique environment differentiates us in the developing world healthcare field and contributes to the sense of dignity, value and responsibility in our patients.

What is your project future impact after receiving professional support from American Express?

We are growing. As we can demonstrate our success, we hope to expand the principles behind our model to a global audience – perhaps even to impoverished populations in the U.S.
