Started a company called redeemer lives that is meant to give a number of the numerous unemployed youth in Uganda Jobs (Youth Unemployment in Uganda is around 75% ) by equipping them with sales and marketing skills and earning through commission, the ones who showed commitment and were progressive in their work would be put on salary scheme.
Started an Android NFC shopping scheme where people don’t have to carry cash if they own an NFC enabled phone and have a bank account or Mobile Money. Hope to employ a number of youth once it is launched in marketing, software development for the different platforms used, account management for the various accounts.
Involved in an RFID chip project for cattle management to curb the rampant theft of cattle especially for the large scale farmers. It’s basically a live real time cattle geo-positioning system that enables the farmer to keep track of all his animals and their locations, any that crosses the defined boundary triggers an alarm. Some farmers can have thousands of thousands of cattle over various square miles of land. We plan to incorporate other features in the chips to make them more useful.
