SPACE FOR COLLABORATIVE WONDERING
Labs for collective imagination...
Kabakoo is a network of indigenously inspired, technologically driven academies. We provide creative learning to the youths of the Africas.
We are dedicated to the emergence of endogenous solutions to local problems by leveraging the power of project-based learning.
Focusing on inclusiveness ...
Everyone is a wonderer. Women and men. Old and young.
We also believe that our societies would be best served if we could harness the knowledge and talents of the vocationally trained, the formally college-educated, and the informally trained alike.
Ecologically built and...
In our Bamako campus, more than 80% of the raw materials for the construction – mainly earth and clay were sourced from a radius of less than 10 km to the site. The passive building and its self-regulating thermic properties due to both the construction technique and the used materials allow us to save more than 70% in energy needs.
Equipped with upcycled furniture...
The furniture of the Bamako campus are made by Bamako’s upcycling artist Gadiaba Kodio and the blacksmiths of the Soukounikoura market who have decided to support us by supplying Kabakoo with upcycled furniture made by waste collected around Bamako.
Where the people actually live!
Our academies are situated in a typical low-income neighborhood. In Bamako, we are located in the sixth district which is its most populated. We work with the people where they live.
