Technovation is a program that invites girls to identify a problem in their communities and then challenge them to solve them by developing apps.

According to Team Save-A-Soul, Nigeria has one of the largest markets for fake drugs. The teenage girls from Anambra State plan to partner with the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), using the app, to tackle this challenge.

The team, on Thursday night, came first at the finals after facing judges from around the world.
