Address-related problems in Africa are solved with iKamin app which generates a GPS based code called KaminCode which represents a unique and private location code allowing for quick and accurate address. KaminCodes are easily exchangeable/memorable short string code which is both immediate and free.

iKamin can work without an internet connection or mobile sim card. All you need is a location-enabled (GPS) phone that runs on android.

The reason for iKamin app is that in many parts of the world especially the developing world like some places in Africa, navigation is highly restricted for many reasons:
 street addresses are either poorly demarcated or non-existent. As a result, homes and buildings either do not have street addresses or have addresses that cannot be precisely located without specific local knowledge.
 streets that are unnamed or have been renamed a few times.
 unofficial roadways or settlements (like the slums in Kibera in Kenya, the Makoko area in Lagos etc).
 newly constructed streets whose names are not widely known.
 areas that have the same or similarly named streets in close proximity.
 locally used names of streets that differ from the official names which could be completely different names or abbreviations of the official names.
 unusual orderings of building numbers - non-consecutive or not aligned with the street.

These issues with address system presents many challenges leading to shortfalls in many modern societal needs such as being unable to receive deliveries, direct emergency services, or manage disaster relief. This is what iKamin app is solving!
