 +====== What can I use it for? ======
 +Verboice is an ideal solution for reaching out to communities whatever their level of literacy or technological sophistication. Here are a few of the ways Verboice can help you inform, educate, and improve the lives of any audience with access to basic phone services: \\
  
 +==== Healthier Pregnancies and Happier Babies ====
 +{{:​en:​introduction:​medicine.png?​100 |}}Healthy babies and mothers form the foundation of a thriving community. With Verboice, mother/​child health advocates can extend their educational outreach campaigns to communities with previously minimal access to prenatal and maternal health education. From month-by-month updates on what to expect during pregnancy to checkup reminders and newborn care advice, Verboice interactive voice campaigns can make a positive difference that will be felt for generations to come.\\
 +
 +==== Researching Human Rights Conditions ====
 +{{:​en:​introduction:​piechart.png?​100 |}}There'​s no better authority on the state of human rights in a community than community members themselves. Verboice allows human rights investigators to survey anonymous callers and get an accurate picture of the ground-level conditions in a community. When abuses are noted, human rights organizations can use Verboice to point the way toward supportive/​protective resources, supply legal information,​ and give the most oppressed a voice that carries beyond the confines of their communities.\\
 +
 +==== Coordinating First Responders ====
 +{{:​en:​introduction:​fire.png?​100 |}}Effectively coordinating first response efforts can mean the difference between a relatively minor misfortune and a disaster. Using Verboice, first responders quickly get a firsthand look at the conditions in even widely separated communities,​ without having to spend precious time travelling from place to place. Triage efforts are based on voice reports gathered directly from victims, helping disaster response teams to better deal with often rapidly changing circumstances and deliver the best care possible.\\

 +==== Organizing Campaign Activists ====
 +{{:​en:​introduction:​tree.png?​100 |}}With Verboice, activists can organize their members from anywhere in the world, using only basic phone equipment. From information about how to participate to inspirational messages from community leaders, outgoing communications can be easily recorded and made instantly available to fellow activists. To keep everyone on track, activists can share ideas about priorities and new initiatives from any cellular or landline-based phone. Whatever the cause, Verboice makes change just a little easier to achieve.
