MobileSenegal provides mentorship to students and developers. After attending our bootcamps, workshops, or trainings, participants are provided with mentoring so they can improve their apps. The goal is to have their work released and published on mobile app stores or piloted with real users. In addition, we review and test regularly the apps that are sent to us.

Some of the apps created under our mentorship are:

  • KomKom, a Java ME accounting application developed during a boot camp, was awarded a Judge Choice Prize at the Nokia Calling All Innovators Competition in 2009. KomKom was piloted in the artisan village of Thiès.
  • CibleCI, a Java ME application designed to help first grade pupils practice essential skills in math, reading, writing and geography, was piloted in elementary schools in Thiès in Senegal in 2012. CibleCI was developed by students from Pace University, Ecole Superieure Polytechnique (ESP) and University of Delhi in the Pace University global software development project in 2009.
  • StopMalaria, a Java ME application developed during a boot camp, was awarded first prize at the Population Council Data Uncovered Contest in December 2011 and presented at the 2012 GSMA Mobile Health University Challenge in Cape Town, South Africa.
  • After mentoring, four applications submitted to the 2011-2012 MobileSenegal Competition were released in the Google Play (SenGeoSante) and Nokia Store (Donor, CodeDeLaRoute, and Niett) in May 2012.
  • After mentoring, four applications submitted to the 2013 MobileSenegal competition were release in the Google Play (CasaTour, FruitSecret, Transport Dakar, Jarmode) in April 2014. Transport Dakar was the winner of the 2014 African Android Challenge for Senegal.
