Allow users to find official documents, important documents and other objects lost in the cities of Yaoundé and Douala. This is the possibility offered since June 2016, by the platform jetrouvtout.com, co-founded by the young Cameroonian Guy Alexis Tambié, Software Engineer.
According to him, this discovery springs from a lived experience. Indeed, he reports, once, “one of our co-founders (Mr. Olivier Njiké) lost his national identity card (NIC). Because of the administrative delays, it took almost a year and a half to have a new NIC. It was at this point that we said to ourselves: ‘Why should we redo our lost NIC when it is certainly somewhere in the street?’ From then on, we tried to develop a platform that would enable Cameroonians to find their lost objects and official documents, rather than having them redone. “
In practice, the work of the team of jetrouvtout.com consists in criss-crossing the streets of the two capitals of Cameroon, in order to collect the lost objects and documents. The information on the collected objects is then entered in the database of the platform to which the users can have access at the address //www.jetrouvtout.com. A telephone switchboard is also available to contact the team in charge of managing the platform.
For the time being, “the site is financed by our own capital,” says Guy Alexis Tambié, who does not hide the financial difficulties faced by his team. Despite this, he reveals, jetrouvtout.com is ambitious “in the coming months, to launch new services to support the basic service and at the same time diversified activity.“
