GEMSI has been hard at work sharing do it yourself, maker, hacker and entrepreneurial culture in the Middle East! We have some new projects coming up and we'd love to share what your support has helped make happen!
We're moving into Baghdad! Our first project there is called Rawaya Wa Badaya (stories and beginnings). We're looking to collect stories of people recognizing problems in their communities and creating an innovative solution to be of service to others. By creating a comic of their story we would like to help them spread their message and their method as far as we possibly can.
GEMSI's next few stages of work in Baghdad can be found here: http://www.gemsi.org/2012/08/gemsi-fall-baghdad-plans/
Thanks again for supporting the development of collaborative community workshops in the middle east! You are awesome.
