Most of Kenyans to do not know at least 10 of their neighbors. I bet you are one of them right??
The Ujirani app is an android application that digitizes the Nyumba Kumi initiative that was rolled out by the Kenyan government in 2013 . The initiative requires neighbors from ten households to know each other Thus enhancing communication safety .
So far it has not been implemented widely . The app is a tool that will ensure that the implementation is faster ,since it brings neighbors from ten households into one platform that will enable them to communicate effectively.
The neighbors also have access to a panic button that is meant to be used during emergency services i.e Security emergency ,medical emergency and Fire emergency. Also one can report an indecent to the police .
