While we are awaiting the announcement of the finalists, we thought we’d share with you some details about where the submissions came from.
The semi-finalist apps that we announced last week have been forwarded to our global network of around 600 end-users from Africa, China and Europe. From their feedback, three top teams from each category (company/student) will be determined. We expect to announce those teams on April 25th.
Just want to show my happiness by creating this post!
Hip-hip hooray! We made it to the semi final.
Now, our app will be reviewed by reviewer from China, Europe, and Kenya. Hopefully they find it good enough because actually our app is targeting local content (Indonesia) hehe...
Reviewers, please be kind to us!
Okay, that's our short post. Pray for us!
We have been very impressed with the contributions we have received. It’s fantastic to see so many innovative ideas turned into great applications.
It has been a difficult task to identify a set of semi-finalists, but here they are (in no particular order):
The first phase of the evaluation process is almost done! But with so many new and interesting contributions, the jury have asked for more time to complete the process.
The winners for the Apps for Africa competition have been decided. It was a tough competition, but the jury came to a final decision.
Hunger is a problem millions of people face every day all over the world. According to the World Vision website, hunger kills 13,000 children a day. A small care, contribution and an act towards humanity can prevent this and make a significant difference. Hence CareFactor aim is to promote surplus and about to expire food to the needy through a proper distribution channel, Which does'n`t need time and require much efforts in one`s daily life.
Few of the World Hunger Facts which we can`t Ignore or avoid:
1.02 billion people in the world are hungry.
