About the project Edit

Calculateur 28 is a tool for calculating the important dates of the menstrual cycle, in particular the period of fertility. After sending a simple text message with some information, the user receives a message containing the date of her next menstruation, the predicted date of ovulation and an estimated period of fertility. The calculator adapts itself to the duration of the cycle.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

The current financial crisis forced households to reduce their planned family size. To achieve this, they must apply practical and effective tools that allow women to understand and predict their menstrual cycles and periods of fertility.
Through CALCULATEUR 28’s mobile service replied directly to the needs of families in Senegal and Burkina Faso by providing a set of information and an alert on the eve of the fertile period via text messaging.
