Their idea is focused on developing a hardware solution for pregnant women. Since mortality rate in mountain region is high and the availability of doctors and health facilities is not enough, it becomes necessary they come up with some better solution for mother to be and the child.

Their solution is basically a belt like device, a pregnancy gadget that:
1.Keeps record of heartbeat of unborn child.
2.Records temperature and humidity of mother
3. Measured data are send to cloud which can be monitored by both doctor and patient
4.If any abnormalities occur it will be notified to doctor and alert will be given to patient so further action can be taken.
5.On the basis of all the collected data prediction of successful or unsuccessful delivery is done.

Project Description:
The Project is specialised and designed to help rural mountain women to raise their voices against violence in their day to day life.We have used Raspberry Pi computer based hardware in which voice (complains) of the victims are recorded and saved in server which’ll be provided to concerned authorities web portal secretly and privately for further investigation. This system will be proved useful during any kind of violence faced by mountain area women in their day to day life where they are compelled to be mute and their complains reports aren’t filed due to third party pressure or the compaint filed gives no right justice to the victim.

Project Description:
The main concept of their project is to uplift the economic standard of mountain women. For this, they have developed Automatic Green House Farming System. In this, they have automatic temperature control inside the house along with auto-irrigation by detecting the soil moisture.

Project Description:
Farming, in traditional ways, is a troublesome job and trend of foreign employment is increasingly rooting down in communities of Nepal. This has led to ever increasing load on women to handle every task, from farming to managing finances, for sustaining household. In this context, development of Multi Seeds Sowing Machine (MSSM), able to sow seeds of different varieties can aid in making farming a relatively easier task and increase the yield greatly. The flexibility of furrow openers in accordance with varying terrains of land and soil type is what present machines lack and makes this machine better.
Secondly, another concept we’re presenting is Vertical Farming. It maximizes output and minimizes input by reducing the magnitude of efforts needed and costs in the form of water supply, labor costs etc. Use of less surface area on the land and yet availability of comparatively more area by use of vertical stacks can increase yield per unit of land.
Blogging can without question, spread awareness about new inventions, providing local people an opportunity to actually engage as well as suggest for making these inventions better.
