Good episode? Give it some love!
A team of students from Kazakhstan have developed an award-winning new app to help keep people safe when they’re walking home after dark. The app, known as “QamCare”, allows people to keep track of their loved ones and to make sure that they don’t go missing by keeping a record of their last known location.

“QamCare” won the Senior Division of the Technovation Challenge World Pitch, which is a major annual competition in which girls from over 100 countries compete to solve a problem in their local communities through mobile technology.

In this talk at GESF 2019, meet the award-winning young team behind the “QamCare” app, hear about the issues that they’re trying to address in Kazakhstan and learn about how mobile technology can help to keep people safe.
