This South African startup puts your neighbourhood in your pocket

24 February, 05:03 PM

Concerned about what's going on in your neighbourhood, but have no way to communicate with your neighbours? We speak to Bruce Good from Our Hood, he introduces us to the South African startup that brings your community online.

Bruce tells our host, Jennifer Sanasie that the project hopes to connect neighbours so they can be more aware of what is happening in their communities. Our Hood verifies that each member is in fact a resident of the community before they are allowed to join the online group. Once you have been verified you can communicate freely about crime, social events and even buy and sell items.
