Dave Donbo, a 25-year-old gentleman has co-founded Kambuu, a mobile application that his township in Upper West and the north, in general, can use to order locally-made vehicles known as ‘pragya’ with their phones.
The young man embarked on a spree to learn software programming after high school when he had no funds to further his education.
According to an article by his current institution, Ashesi University, Dave decided to provide the taxi-hailing service after realizing that it was rampant in Southern Ghana but not in the North. In 2021, the ambitious young man successfully got admitted into Ashesi as a Computer Engineering student, where he dedicated time to building the app.
“In his very first semester, he applied for funding from the Fund for Service to Youth and Children at Ashesi towards launching Kambuu. The Fund for Service to Youth and Children was established at Ashesi by the Ford Foundation to fund student startups that also contribute to wellbeing and social impact for young people,” the school reports.
Now, the Kambuu app is live in Tamale, Northern Ghana on iOS and Android.
In another report, an innovative Ghanaian student, Eyram Tamakloe, has developed a portable monitoring device and dosage counter that could help asthmatic children better recognise triggers. Besides discerning triggers in their environment, the devices could also alert the user to urgently retrieve a rescue inhaler.
Tamakloe, a final-year student at Ashesi University in Ghana was inspired to build the devices for her final year project because of her childhood inadequacies as a person who suffered from asthma.
