Afrimakers is an initiative that wants to enable African makers to use local know-how and hands-on prototyping for solving local challenges like access to clean water, energy, information. The idea is to plant the seed of local change through social entrepreneurship, digital fabrication and regional collaboration. Stefania Druga together with Ahmed Bastawy , Saieed, and Abdelaziz from the Afrimakers project will be visiting Kenya on 24 Jan till 1 Feb to train facilitators on spreading latest technologies among 7 - 16 year olds in Kenya and ِAfrica. The training workshops will cover Arduino & Raspberry Pi programming as well as some electronics basics. The workshop will be held at FabLab on the 27th of January with two sessions from 9:00AM to 12:00AM and 2:00PM to 6:00PM.
