African kids are not props for your summer service photos. They are heroes at the center of their OWN story. Meet the 6 girls from a school in Anambra, Nigeria (where my granny from🗣) who coded a gold medal-winning product that detects harmful, fake drugs. Between regular lessons and with limited/poor internet connection, these Nigerian kids were empowered to reach their full potential, ousting teams from China, the US & more. #TeamSaveASoul
“The girls, from Regina Pacis Model Secondary School, Onitsha, codenamed Team Save-A-Soul comprising of Promise Nnalue, Jessica Osita, Nwabuaku Ossai, Adaeze Onuigbo and Vivian Okoye, developed a mobile application called ‘FD-Detector’ to tackle the problem of fake pharmaceutical products in Nigeria with Mrs Uchenna Onwuamaegbu-Ugwu, as their mentor.” – Technovation
