ToguMogu launched the parenting app in October 2020. The app connects pregnant and new mothers to receive personalized health information and get access to healthcare services.
In 2022, ToguMogu expanded its operation to RMG factories for female garment workers. BRAC, H&M Foundation, and UNFPA support with grants to ToguMogu to bring pregnancy, health, and wellbeing app and their services to the largest female worker community in Bangladesh.
ToguMogu CEO Dr. Nazmul Arefin said, ‘We started ToguMogu targeting nuclear families who recently became first-time parents like myself living in the cities. This year has been amazing for us. We have successfully expanded our operation to target females and mothers from economically challenged backgrounds.’
He further added, ‘BASIS National ICT Award 2022 is an amazing recognition for the team’s hard work. I am grateful to the judges for nominating ToguMogu. I believe with the necessary support, we can build ToguMogu as a global app for all mothers and fathers.’
