What the platform is about?
The MakerSpace is a platform for makers by makers. We empower people by inspiring, teaching, learning and sharing. We partner with other's who also want to empower makers in Africa. Our platform supports and connects makers and local "maker spaces" providing a creative playground equipped with the tools that help lower the barriers to entry for people to express their creativity in a physical way.
It is about people getting together, working creatively,
their experience and resources,
each other how to build, make and share.
Makers find value in making something themselves rather than buying something off the shelf. They give a physical product more value because of the thoughtful, careful and useful way they design it and make it. Makers are not aiming for mass market for their product, they are simply expressing something they love, and sharing that love with anyone else that they can.
Makers Openly share resources, expertise, equipment and encouragement because they choose to believe that we can do more together than we can apart. Maker's like the idea of a “bottom-up economy”, where products are developed by the people who use them, not from the corporate headquarters of multinational companies.
The heart of a Maker is to do good, and improve the world around them, and prefer to share designs rather than hide them.
