YEN.com.gh has sighted a video of five young Nigerian girls who have developed an app that helps with educating children.
The girls, known as the Brain Squad, created the ‘Handsout’, which also helps with donation of books, stationery and other necessaries.
The idea behind the invention is to help less-privileged children access basic education with little effort.
The motivation behind the creation of the app, YEN.com.gh understands, was because of an unfortunate incident that occurred at Itafaji in Lagos.
A school building reportedly collapsed and people lost their lives while properties were damaged.
Per a report by BBC News Africa.com, the Brain Squad, won the People’s Choice Award at the 2019 Global Innovation Programme at Silicon Valley.
Social media users took the opportunity to congratulate the girls for the app:
Edo-Omozuwa thanked them for making Africa proud.
Odusola urged them to keep up the good work.
Lara declared they are the hope for Africa.
Williams also noted that Nigerian youth are extremely talented.
Seigneur predicted a shining future for them.
Appiah declared the children are smart and added he is proud of them.
