The touchstone of the Parenthood Plus (PPlus) program is its web-based application, which opens the door to a new universe of information and opportunity for families. Unlike the majority of sites created for parents about parenting, the PPlus application is designed for users with low or no-literacy skills and with limited resources.

Parenthood Plus connects mothers, counselors and health professionals in secure, password-protected communities and provides the essentials of parenting through videos, animations, slideshows, audio and graphics. The format of the application is accessible, culturally-sensitive and engaging.

The current modules of PPlus include breastfeeding, nutrition, family planning and childhood development. In addition, a multi-lingual online children's library of flash animated books, a photo-driven email function, a dynamic calendar and a growing archive of essential resources are housed within the application.
