GREEN N KOOK SOAP – RECYCLING WASTE OIL, TO MAKE NO- RINSE SOAPS.

In Madagascar, 3 people out of 4 have no access to either water or soap, according to  UNICEF figures. In  a win-win solution, Green N Kook, an association of young environmental activists, is collecting and recycling waste oil to make no-rinse soap.

They are involving vulnerable households in the project. An app is being produced to facilitate waste oil collections. This project won 5th prize at the Global Hack last April.

THE MADA-BASE PROJECT COMPUTERIZING VILLAGES INFO

MADA-BASE is a project aimed at computerizing all of the “Fokontany” (villages) in Madagascar and connecting them all in a network using a web-based application. This is an app to manage the population and also to collect important data to better manage the allocation of aid and emergency support in crisis situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

WEB AND MOBILE COVID TRACKER

A group of young programmers have developed a web and mobile app to assist with locating and reporting suspected cases of COVID-19 on the island. The app also seeks to provide a decision-making tool for the anti- COVID-19 operational command center to check information, allocate response teams and better locate reported cases.
