Cobbie Foundation And Afritek Technologies Sign A New Deal
Kigali, Rwanda, Aug. 12, 2019 /MY JOURNEY/ – Cobbie Foundation is releasing a new mobile application compatible with Android and iPhones all over Africa. Due to the high rise of depression and addiction in Eastern and Central Africa, Cobbie Foundation has partnered with AfriTek Technologies in creating an interactive mobile app that helps users identify mental illness symptoms. All youths are encouraged to attend the launch event in Kigali Convention Center on Sept. 2, 2019.
Since majority of teens and youths spend more than 50% of their time on smartphones, the new mobile app is guranteed to help youths correctly diagnose themselves for mental illness symptoms. This new mobile app is a new frontier to effectively combat mental illness in men and women who cannot afford psychiatric services from private and public hospitals. Cobbie Foundation’s deal with AfriTek Technologies guarantees users 100% privacy and professional depression and addiction services.
According to Rwanda Survey Company, the increase of mental disorders and drug and substance abuse in Rwanda is 5% annually. As a result, a large portion of Rwandan workforce is lost and the nation’s GDP decreases with every suicide and drug overdose. The new mobile app offers interactive interface that asks questions about the state of the user. Also, the new mobile app educates the users about mental illness,and drug and substance abuse.
Aside from this, the new mobile app, provides a safe platform for users from diverse backgrounds and nationalities to interact. The chats are carefully monitored by automated checkers and keeps users safe from cyber criminals. The app is equipped with real-time locater for mental health and rehabilitation centers in the user’s area. Plus, the app provides a detailed list of contacts for certified psychiatrists and doctors.
“Cobbie Foundation is hopeful that the new mobile app will tremendously help in spreading mental illness awareness beyond African borders. Together with AfriTek Technologies, we look forward to saving more African youths from mental illness and drug and substance addiction by providing a tool that is easily accessible to everyone from every background.” said Ann Runihura, chief executive officer of Cobbie Foundation.
