Gawana's mission is to bring long distance ridesharing to East Africa. Our Android mobile application a platform to share journeys with other travelers.
One of Gawana's co-founders used to live in Uganda and Rwanda and realized the challenges of moving between cities in the region. Buses were often late or too crowded or took hours longer than driving in a personal car. But hiring a vehicle was too expensive for one person and driving with few passengers is environmentally irresponsible.
Gawana hopes to meet the demand for more long distance affordable transport options while introducing the sharing economy. Rather than buying a personal vehicle people can make new friends and share journeys through Gawana's platform.
