Burundi 3.0

Ambassador: Adelard Kakunze , Burundi

Adelard founded Burundi 3.0 after attending a One Young World Summit three years ago. He aims to deliver mobile services to communities through two different projects. The first, Akiwawe Opportunities gives job seekers alerts through SMSs. The second, mDiab Burundi, is an app to assess risk factors associated with diabetes. Previously, in order to access job opportunities they would have had to connect to the internet which can cost $17 a month (low tariff). Burundi 3.0 currently has 15,000 subscribers for job searching alone.
