Team eaglesforever – as the girls team is called – are among hundreds of powerful ideas presented in Africa.

The Kenyan girls’ team from Bahati Girls High School, in Nakuru county, comprised of four form three students were shortlisted as Africas’ top team in the global tech challenge called ‘Link to bridging the gap in STEM careers’ technovation challenge under Safaricom Women in Technology initiative.

The team created an app dubbed “Gochild” that provides child protection services to everyone under age 18 and can be used to report cases of physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and early marriage and also to find children lawyers to represent them at low cost.

Previously, two other Kenyan teams have made it to this international levels starting with precious blood – developed bus booking app, and then followed closely kisumu girls with the famous i-cut app.
