Dehydration to preserve and provide food!

Lisungi Fablab  -  Democratic Republic of the Congo

The Solar Dehydrator is a solution which is useful for the entire population. It preserves foods through the use of a modern greenhouse storage system which focuses sunlight in a single location to monitor the drying process. The solution differs from traditional drying methods in that it enables constant evaporation and offers protection from bad weather. Some of the young people in this FabLab are not in education because of economic reasons or because of the wars of the past few years.

Vote for the third Solidarity FabLab challenge!

In our Solidarity FabLabs, we offer free training to young people facing difficulties in their lives. They learn about digital production, team-work and maybe even lay the foundations of a future career. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It offers them the opportunity to work on a project from beginning to end and to showcase their skills and abilities. This year, the challenge involves using digital technologies to imagine sustainable development solutions which fit into our everyday lives.
