Last week, MTN business in partnership with Forbes woman organised an awards event to recognise Women making a difference and challenging stereotypes and Christine Ampaire won the MTN business Award.

Christine attributes her success to her team members whom she has worked with ever since their first product MafutaGo was launched.

Christine is the Team Lead at Codesync, one of Outbox's resident start-up companies in Kampala whose main focus is making applications that are locally relevant and solve the day to day solutions of the African man. It birthed MafutaGo and MyZiki, a 
music platform on which exclusive African music can be bought by users and sold by musicians.

She is also a co-founder of the Girl-geek kampala initiative, an independent initiative to celebrate and promote women and girls in science and technology in Uganda with it’s home at Outbox.
