TANA Kruger, a speech therapist from the Bay, has assured her spot in the Top 10 of the Helping Hand organisationand#039;s app building competition.

As part of Helping Hand’s Schools support centre the organisation decided to teach both young and old how to build an app.

“It’s the first project of its sort in Afrikaans and we have a variety of apps which can be built,” said Anette Taljaard, project organiser at Helping Hand.

To launch the programme, the organisation had a competition which allows old app builders the opportunity to build apps which were judged and an amount of R100 000 was on the line.

After approximately 400 entries and several elimination rounds, Tana is one of the 10 app builders who pushed through to the Top 10 of the competition.

The name of the app Tana built is “Tana Kruger Speech therapy”.

According to Kruger, she uses the app in her practice to help her patients. “I am very passionate about speech therapy in Afrikaans, and I really would like to share it with other people.”

When she learned that she had made it through to the Top 10, Tana was astonished. “I was very surprised when I heard the news, as I was just trying out something new and I wanted to use the app for my practice.”

The top 10 app builders are people from all around South Africa and the winner of the competition will be announced tomorrow.
