SnooCode | GHANA


SnooCode is a free mobile application that solves the problem of the lack of addresses in developing countries like Ghana. It provides everyone in rural or urban areas with a unique geolocation based code which can be used to provide directions to any location in the country. In a robust and easy way, SnooCode uses a GPS enabled phone avoiding costly bureaucracy, even where there is no telephone infrastructure. In Ghana, most people, with the exception of the most wealthy, live without official addresses, even in urban areas. Aggregating these codes can greatly improve logistics in everything from eCommerce to public health. SnooCode demonstrates inclusion through a service taken for granted in so many countries – having an address.
