I am passionate about

Actions

I am currently a co-founder of Usalama Technology Limited. Our flagship product is the Usalama platform which is a mobile based platform that connects users and emergency service providers (ambulance, security, police, road-side assistance and gender based violence) in a quick and efficient manner, utilizing real-time user data, and an integrated web-based back-end portal. We extend the reach of emergency service providers (non-profit and for-profit) by providing an efficient way to reach provider subscribers and application end users. We leverage on mobile technology to accurately link victims of emergencies to emergency service providers, community health volunteers and medical care. We currently have reached more than 10,000 people in over 15 different countries and brought access to these resources to the touch of a button for them while linking them to meaningful help. Our goal is to become a technology and innovation leader in the healthcare and emergency fields and each passing day I strive at attaining this.
