The Afrimakers project starts tomorrow in Egypt. Main goal is to empower local makers to develop sustainable projects and use making to solve local challenges and create an exchange of best practices between locals.
Here you can subscribe for mentors training or send us your ideas/comments.
The local team has prepared a video to explain why Afrimakers is important for them and how it could help them with their current projects.
They also organized this preliminary schedule:
16 Jan> Arrival and Transfer to Alexandria
17 Jan> Meet guys, introduce Afrimakers project, meet Alexandrians and invite people to show
18 Jan> Tour Prep Day
19 to 21 Jan> Intensive workshop training
22 to 23 Jan> School Visit to Montesori School in Alexandria plus optional rest day (During these days some participants may also opt to create new projects)
24th Jan> Travel to River Nile School
25th Jan> Workshop at River Nile School
26th Jan> Stefania leaves
Now we just hope all the materials and the trainer will arrive safe in Egypt considering the circumstances:) .
The Afrimakers crowdsourcing campaign ends in 24 h, support the makers revolution here and help us make this happen!
