The great people of  Afrigadget (I am a contributor to this site and responsible for mentoring the newest South African youth to become contributors as well) are co-organizing the first event celebrating the innovators and inventors in Africa this August at Maker Faire Africa ( – it’s a 3 day event bringing together artists, inventors and all manner of ingenious people in Accra, Ghana.

By the way…. see this ball in the banner? Check out Tash her story on the Afrigadget site here: football handmade in south-africa

That was the first grassroots reporter contribution of the South African COSAT students. Keep on checking out their own website:

Wouldn’t it be great to get those COSAT learners to Ghana??? hmmm…. donations welcome…
