My first trip to Benin was last April. We reported in details here.
In August I will go back and see how our projects evolve. Before going to Benin, I will stop over in Accra, Ghana, to visit the Makers Faire.
The aim of a Maker Faire-like event is to create a space on the continent where Afrigadget-type innovations, inventions and initiatives can be sought, identified, brought to life, supported, amplified, propagated, etc.
Maker Faire Africa asks the question, “What happens when you put the drivers of ingenious concepts from Mali with those from Ghana and Kenya, and add resources to the mix?”If you are interested, please check it out and join!
