Teens Rachael Akano (16), Margaret Akano (17) and Joy Njekwe (17) created the app Memory Haven and have won the top prize at the 2020 Technovation World Summit.

Memory Haven helps people in Ireland whose families have been impacted by dementia.

The app features playlists to comfort people with dementia, alerts, face and voice recognition, and health checks.

The team beat 5,400 students from 62 countries to claim their prize.
