Last week, CGE presented a poster at the Grand Challenges Annual Meeting 2019 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The poster detailed the Co-creation Maker Space at the Bahir Dar Institute of Technology (BiT). In collaboration with BiT and Nairobi Maker Space, CGE has supported the establishment of the Maker Space which is located at the main BiT campus. The project aims to create an enabling environment for the development of innovative technological solutions to local challenges. We were delighted to be the awardee of the People’s Prize for Collaboration. Many thanks to our partners at BiT and to everyone who voted, and thank you to Grand Challenges for hosting the event.
