INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MIGRATION, DJIBOUTI
The Creative Spaces for Migrants in Djibouti is a pilot project aimed at establishing creative makerspaces in Djiboutiville, in partnership with the University of Djibouti. These spaces follow the global FabLab model promoted by the Fab Foundation, which includes several standard digital fabrication technologies – including laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC mills, and vinyl cutting.
The overall purpose of FabLabs is to support technical education, digital fabrication, and provide a meeting space for youth on the move. The evaluation focused on establishing the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of the project, with a focus on learning from the pilot initiative, including the viability of innovative approaches to migrant engagement and skills development.
