The mYouth project is blossoming: app camps are taking place all around the world!
The mYouth Mobile Camp of Senegal http://myouth.mobilesenegal.org took place in Dakar in March and was organized by Mobile4Senegal http://mobilesenegal.org. Six teams were selected to participate in the Mobile Camp. The six apps focused on health, education, transportation, environment and business.
The camp was organized around lectures on entrepreneurship, apps made in Senegal, Design Thinking and User Experience (UX) Design. Participants attended mentoring sessions on the technical aspect of their mobile applications and pitching in French and English.
The first prize was awarded to meeLearn. meeLearn is a set of interactive games for pupils from the 1st grade to K12. The second prize was awarded to Andando. Andando is a mobile platform for carpooling that reduces travel costs and contributes to preserving the environment. Two projects were runner-ups. CasaTour, an application created by students of Assane Seck University in Ziguinchor, promotes tourism in Casamance. Saytouma allows daily monitoring of diabetic and hypertensive patients.
