The Cyan Girls : developing videogames « Made in Senegal »
The three girls don’t lack ambition: after participating in the world “Imagine Cup” finals in New York, now they are focused on creating their own company, Jiguene Tech. What is their goal? Creating mobile applications and videogames which can be useful to their fellow Senegalese citizens, especially women.
In the video below (in French), the three young engineers describe their project in detail. Their aim is to show the cultural aspects of African cities, and Africans in general. For instance, their “Smart Guide” enables Dakar inhabitants to discover their city through the camera of their mobile smartphones. The Cyan Girls want to prove their expertise and show they are at the same level as men engineers, and their developments prove it. Each wants to present what their county has to offer, and through technology they are achieving their goals: help women develop themselves, as well as find solutions to help their country develop itself.
“Cyan” is a symbolic name as it represents the color purple, as well as the acronym for their names.
