Women who are independent, healthy and confident are either running businesses, social enterprises, organizations or a part of the workforce of the country are equally contributing towards the growth of the society as a whole. We have come a long way from crossing the confinements of our households to receive best of education and employment to in fact creating jobs. Whether entrepreneurs are born or made, is an unending debate that everyone has a different opinion on. Regardless of where you stand, it is clear; entrepreneurs strive to help humanity and make the world a better place. One such influential woman who is an entrepreneur at heart is Meghana Kambham, Co-Founder of CarenGrow. As an entrepreneur, it gives her immense satisfaction to work with so many talented women who are equally passionate about their work, and we all collectively stand for what modern-day India symbolizes, i.e., tremendous strength and power.
Modern, Educated and Self-reliant Women
Meghana is an award-winning medical graduate, and a social entrepreneur witnessed many people diagnosed with diseases and conditions that were preventable. Moreover, she noticed that parents lacked the commitment or even the knowledge of getting health checks done for children. The outlook is for corrective healthcare – take the children to a doctor when they are unwell. Many conditions are attributed to the child being disobedient, indiscipline or merely notorious. Parents being ignorant about the hidden conditions that may be causing the problems, harm children even more.
It was more devastating to look at the statistics of the children-pediatrician ratio of 3000:1 in the country. She realized that the doctors and nurses were just not well equipped or prepared to manage the healthcare of children of the nation correctly. She understood that the Indian healthcare system was more of “Sick care” system.
Thoughtful Measure for Developing an Application
Meghna turned to technology to build a platform for preventive screening and behavior change.  CarenGrow was born as a fruit of thoughtful analysis of the social health condition of the Indian community as a whole. She designed this from ground-up to empower teachers and parents to take charge of monitoring children’s health. The Apps are simple to use and requires minimum training. She is determined to have the CarenGrow System is operational throughout India having run successful test runs for over 6000 school-going children. The auspicious nature of the System has recently brought to it “Patent Pending” status with the support of Microsoft’s #MakeWhatsNext program.
In my opinion, a right businesswoman is a woman who is confident and unshakable on her path towards excellence. Her purpose is her strength, and she walks alone. She leads and also creates the way for many other fellow human beings empowering them with her vision. Moreover, providing not only means of sustainable livelihood but also impacting the lives of people who are in its dire need,” asserts Meghana.
