Rhino at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp

Dzaleka Refugee Camp is situated in one of the poorest countries in the world—Malawi. It has existed for over 25 years and hosts about 40,000 refugees and asylum seekers.

A Burundian refugee, Remy Gakwaya, is a self-taught computer programmer. He rented a tiny room in the camp and with one computer started to teach computer programming skills. Later, they assembled a 3D Printer, learned Rhinoceros, and they are now sharing these skills with others in the camp. When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, they immediately began designing and developing 3D-printed protective essentials such as face masks, face shields, and equipment for aid-workers or hospitals.
