10 Tech innovations that tackle social concerns in African countries

Creativity and ingenuity in technology is driving a new generation of African innovators

It’s well known that African countries are developing at a rapid rate. According to the World Bank's Global Economic Prospects report, six of these countries are ranked as the fastest growing economies in the world. This development is especially apparent in technology fields where creative inventions, tech hacks and innovations are finding solutions to socially centred problems. We’re seeing students in Kenya build their own solar-powered motorcycles, a robotics school nurturing a new generation of problem-solvers in Uganda and honey-spun band-aids designed to heel diabetics’ wounds in Egypt.
