Recording - March 23 kick-off meeting for the 2023 Kangaroo Care Day (May 15).

Thank you for registering for the March 23 kick-off meeting for the Kangaroo Care Day (May 15).

The first 25 minutes, Yamile presented ideas about how to celebrate, set up a goal, and the steps of a project. 

Minute 26:27 starts the explanation of the mobile app for parents to track kangaroo care and other activities, set up a baby's group (to share the baby's account with others), and the journal.

Minute 32:56 starts the demo of the web app for the kangaroo-a-thon and the app for coaches and team leaders.  This web app will be published at in April.  If you are interested in trialing it contact
The Zaky® APP was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Nurtured by Design®.

Suggestion: Set the Playback Speed at 1.25x 

 We are hosting two events in May:

1- Kangaroo-a-thon (calculate your durations and average either manually or with the app)

2- Kangaroo Care Team Leader of The Year Award (nominations are accepted until May 1st, 2023, and self-nominations are welcomed)
