We are pleased that our innovation has not gone unnoticed!

The 30 Most Inspiring Digital Innovations 2020 came to us as an opportunity to share our inspiring innovation with the world, and we seized the chance to put forth our application on July 9, 2020, among several other innovations from various parts of the world including those from Africa, Latin America, and Asia.

Since its inception in 2016, The Spindle – Partos’ innovative platform- continues to provide opportunities for innovators to transform their wealth of human-impact ideas into innovative approaches and solutions. This year, doors were opened to 100 inspiring digital innovations in the field of development cooperation, out of which 30 Most Inspiring Digital Innovations were selected.

After careful review, extensive deliberation, and careful scoring, BridgingSpace – the tele-counselling innovation by Yomoh Health Limited – succeeded as one of the 30 Most Inspiring Digital Innovations 2020. To this point, we are honored by this recognition as one of the most brilliant innovators working on new digital initiatives that contribute to an inclusive and sustainable world.

On behalf of the BridgingSpace team, I wish to express that we are exhilarated by this selection and are highly motivated knowing that the sincerity of our initiative as a social impact organization, the intensity of our efforts, and the grace behind our drive, has brought us to this point.

We are aware of the tremendous challenges that have confronted our nation Nigeria in the past and, more so, at the time of this of the COVID-19 pandemic. In spite of this, we are resolved to change the narrative by continuing as a niche of ingenious solution-providers with unlimited potentials committed to providing unflinching, unalloyed, and unfettered tech-driven support for individuals with mental health challenges. However, we cannot do this alone. We call on well-meaning investors, philanthropists, donors, collaborators, and the general public, to throw their weight behind this initiative in a bid to realize the desired social impact in the healthcare system, specifically in the mental health intervention area.

The voice of Nelson Mandela still resonates in his quote, “Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great, you can be that generation”. Join willing hearts and hands with us so that together we can achieve much more and foster great generations!
