Not only for African parents, but fathers and mothers across the world experience the same turmoil and sometimes excessively worry about their safety of their kids—and that’s completely normal for them to be. Although such problem may be addressed by simply asking the children, many regards this solution as still less practical due to some kids’ unresponsive nature.
But hey, I don’t judge.

Engineered prudently by Ginini Consulting, LocTransie is designed to promote security in transports where communications are deemed as a challenge for schools and parents—eventually reassuring both sides that the children are safely picked up and are sitting comfortably on their seats. Notifications can also embody in the form of SMS, locating the child at any given moment during their school transport route. Parents can now worry less whenever their children are doing extracurricular activities, formal academic learnings, or even school excursions. Delays and detours will also be informed via notifications.
