NEW YORK, NEW YORK — The grant to Creating Resources for Empowerment in Action (CREA) will support a project that seeks to advance the sexual and reproductive health of adolescent girls in India through an information and education program using Information, Communications and Technology (ICT). CREA will conduct a feasibility report for using ICT strategies, including mobile phones to share reproductive and sexual health information with youth. The findings of the report will inform the design, delivery and evaluation of a pilot project using mobile phones to disseminate health information among Hindi-speaking adolescent girls living in the state of Uttar Pradesh in India.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Creating Resources for Empowerment and Action $125,000 between 2010 and 2013.
