COVID-19 3D-PRINT

FOR AFRICA
Let's build solutions together

3D printing to fight Covid-19

in Africa

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.

Collaboration

 

Inspired by other initiatives around the world, the

Covid-19 3D-Print

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.

Hackathon

 

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.

The solutions

 

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.

Join us!
