We’re so impressed with Malaika’s STEM team harnessing technology into an immediate and concrete tool during this pandemic. Members of Covid19DRC, a new initiative between our local STEM staff and Dr. Jonathan Mboyo Esole, our special advisor, are using Malaika’s 3D printer to produce an initial 450 face shields.
These will be distributed to local hospitals at no cost, in order to protect doctors, nurses and first responders. Our goal is to reach 1000 masks, so medical workers on the front line have the protection they need. Amazing work and incredible use of technology, team!
SIA-Africa chose Noella Coursaris Musunka as their person of the month for February! SIA (Sustainable Initiatives and Alliances for Africa) is an organization that aims to ’empower the youth of Africa by encouraging them to embrace science, technology, engineering, digital media and nation branding skills, as a path to entrepreneurial innovation, wealth creation and economic independence.’ We love and absolutely relate to their mission, which aligns closely to ours.
Noella received this award in order to honor her ‘vision, passion and support to the people of Africa,’ and we could not be more proud. Thank you SIA-Africa!
