Our makerspace in Jinja, Uganda is funded by the hacker community and provides free advanced instruction and resources for budding technologists. We teach robotics, design, programming and much more. Although it has been funded by the hacker community since 2015, we are seeking corporate donors to continue the funding of this terrific project. The annual operating costs for the hackerspace alone is approximately $5,000.
A group of local high school students and university-age young adults has taken an intense interest in advanced technology study and has founded a competitive robotics team based in our hackerspace. Take a moment to visit their self-built webpage:
