San3a Tech (Sanaa Tech) is a social enterprise committed to democratizing personalized manufacturing, technical innovation and DIY culture by providing access to the environment, skills, materials, and equipment to allow anyone from hobbyists to entrepreneurs and professionals to turn their ideas into prototypes and physical products. We impact 25, 000 beneficiaries yearly through our various products including Fab Lab Egypt which is now a network of 6 fablabs across Egypt, San3a Academy which acts as the educational arm of the company, and many other capacity-building programs. We’re also the organizers of Maker Faire Cairo and had the honor of organizing the first Fab Lab Global Conference in Africa in 2019. Through our 10-year journey since we kicked-off Fab Lab Egypt in 2011, we helped set up +30 makerspaces and fablabs locally and internationally.

About the project

Over our +10 year journey, we can say we’re learning new things every day and we find missing pieces of the puzzle every year and it’s never ending, but one my best ‘aha’ moments so far was this time right after COVID outbreak, when everyone related to our community was worried about us and was caring if we’re going to continue after all of this, back then, I understood how important what we’re doing for the community. The other moment was after the Graduation of Girls Make program where 14-18 aged girls from cities other than the capital felt empowered and confident with the knowledge they gained and the resources they accessed.
