Let's build solutions together
3D printing to fight Covid-19
Who are we ?
Energy Generation is a pan-African organization based in Togo and Ghana that supports young Africans in addressing their generation's most pressing challenges (in energy, agriculture, health...) through entrepreneurship and technology.
Inspired by other initiatives around the world, the
plateforme aims at gathering open-source knowledge around 3D printing solutions tailored for an African context, ranging from technical conception to procurement and logistics challenges.
What do we do?
The virus is benign in most cases but its extremely rapid spread and the virulence of the related symptoms lead to a congestion of health systems.
Therefore is it crucial to be to support the health systems as much as we can.
In order to tap further into the collective intelligence, we will organise an online hackathon on
May 1, 2 and 3rd 2020
to invite as many people as possible to think together about how we can optimise our solutions and, above all, make them accessible to as many people as possible throughout Africa.
Our priority project is the production of "low cost" and "made in Africa" respirators as well as the reflection on energy solutions that will allow their use in areas without electricity.In addition, we also want to produce accessories such as protective masks and visors for healthcare personnel.
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
