The People's Vision partners with and supports a number of charitable organziations working on important social, humanitarian and environmental projects.  Here we highlight one such project due to our role as a founding partner along with five other partners in the project. It is also a project in which you can get involved with to directly help save lives, improve lives and contribute to a healthier planet by participating in its crowdfunding sponsorship opportunity as well as participating in its interactive solar power generation community in The People's World Empowerment Network.  It is the Zero Mothers Die Partnership Initiative.

Saving the lives of pregnant women with Information and Communication Technology and Mobile Health.

 

Zero Mothers Die (ZMD) is a global partnership initiative that aims to improve maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) and at-risk pregnant mothers lives by empowering pregnant women with mobile health and solar micro-business. The initiative was founded by Advanced Development for Africa (ADA) and the Millennia2025 Foundation, in partnership with UNAIDS and technology partners Airtel Africa, UniversalDoctor Project and The People's Vision. Futher regional technology partners will be added to the partnership as ZMD is expands around the world. ZMD's initial launch region is Africa where the vast majority of maternal and newborn deaths occur.

INTRODUCTION
800 women die every day worldwide from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth and 99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries. This ironic tragedy, that a person should lose their life while giving life to another, is unacceptable.  Like you, the Zero Mothers Die partnership believes this figure should be zero.

As a solution, the Zero Mothers Die partnership have developed a powerful mobile health solution aimed at keeping all at risk mothers and their babies safe and alive to enjoy a healthy and fulfilling life.

PROBLEM | Unacceptably High Maternal Mortality
In 2010, an estimated 287,000 women died during and following pregnancy and childbirth. Each day, 800 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy or childbirth complications. 99 percent of these maternal deaths occurred in developing countries with more than half taking place in sub-Saharan Africa.

SOLUTION | Zero Mothers Die
Zero Mothers Die is a global project envisioned by an innovative public-private partnership to support and empower all pregnant women and new mothers by employing a comprehensive approach to improve maternal, newborn and child health through the systematic use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and mobile health.

Mobile phone networks cover 96 percent of the world's population, with 77 percent of all mobile subscriptions held by nearly 90 percent of the population in low- and middle-income countries.

The impact of mobile phone technology on health, including maternal health, can be far reaching, cost-effective and replicable.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES | Zero Mothers Die
• Reducing maternal mortality
• Accelerating mobile phone ownership and use by women
• Education and capacity-building of local health workers

Solar Power Generation Business Packages for At-Risk Pregnant Women

The People’s Power is The People's Vision Solar Power Charger for mobile phones. The People's Power is applied as a Solar Power Business package for pregnant women in the Zero Mothers Die project in a way that opens up opportunities for your involvement.

Solar Charger iPhone   Solar Charger USB  Solar Panel  ChargerSolar Panel Side View

The Zero Mothers Die Solar Power Business package helps pregnant mothers earn money by generating green energy to charge mobile phones in their local community. Through a unique charger, the green energy generated will be monitored with Wattage data fed into a global "The People's Power Exchange" green energy exchange platform, creating "Solar Credits". Individuals and Corporations will be able to purchase Solar Credits from The People’s Power Exchange to offset their personal or corporate carbon footprint.

When the Solar Panel creates 1 Watt, - 0.5g of CO2 is saved. This is the Kyoto protocol’s formula.

The People’s Power assigns 1 Solar Credit to 0.5g CO2. 1 Solar Credit is in turn valued at 10 Euro Cents equivalent of services provided by The People's Vision and a growing list of companies that will exchange services in order to off-set their carbon footprint.

A single Solar Panel used regularly every day in the sun will generate sufficient energy in the charger to earn between 100 to 150 Credits per month. This would equate to 10 Euros to 15 Euros.

A Funder of the Zero Mothers Die Solar Business package will have priority purchase rights of the Solar Credits generated by the Solar Panel(s) they purchase for a Pregnant Mother in the Zero Mothers Die Project. These are known as Priority Solar Credits. Solar Panel Funders acquiring their Priority Solar Credits can apply them to offset their personal or corporate global carbon footprint. If Solar Panel Funders do not acquire their Priority Solar Credits, they will be acquired by other purchasers in The People's Power Exchange.

In this way, Funders will help to save the lives of pregnant women and their babies and in doing so help the pregnant women contribute to a healthier planet.

 

Solar Power Generation Business Package – Definition & Components

Solar Business Package
A Solar Power Generation Business Package that is used to generate solar power which can be used to charge mobile phones and create Solar Credits. Solar Credits in turn can be purchased by individuals or businesses to offset their Carbon Footprint.

Solar Charger
The Solar Charger contains an advanced intelligence that accurately measures how much energy it captures and stores in its built-in batteries. Once charged it is immediately ready to charge any smart phone or tablet.

Solar Panel
A flexible solar module that generates up to four Watts per hour - enough to charge the Solar Charger in four hours. It can be attached to any window or be simply laid down on a sunny surface.

Suction cups
Suction cups are provided with the Solar Panels and are engineered to enable them to be held on clean, smooth surfaces. These work both indoors and outdoors, are UV protected and are not affected by extreme heat or cold.

Solar Panel Adapter cable
A Y-adapter with a DC plug that connects two flexible solar panels to a single solar charger. Its dimensions are 5.5mm * 2.1mm * 11 mm
