Dave Donbo, a 25-year-old gentleman, co-founded Kambuu, a mobile app that his Upper West Township and northern township at large can use to order locally made vehicles called “pragya” with their phones.

The young man embarked on a spree to learn software programming after high school when he had no money to further his education.

According to a post from his current institution, Ashesi University, Dave decided to provide the taxi service after realizing it was rampant in southern Ghana but not in the north.

“In his very first semester, he applied for funding from the Ashesi Youth and Children’s Service Fund to launch Kambuu.

Now the Kambuu app is live in Tamale, Northern Ghana on iOS and Android.
