Covid Free is a collection of practices and actions developed by local communities in Africa in order to contain the spread of Covid-19 epidemic.
Our goal is to encourage the sharing of knowledge and the dissemination of simple, creative and economic solutions and to expand the defense opportunities from outbreaks, especially in the most disadvantaged communities.
COVID-FREE is an idea of two italian partners: Taxibrousse studio and Associazione Le Reseau
Taxibrousse studio is an architecture and engineering partnership specialized in design and consulting for international development.
Le Reseau is a cultural association involved in the fields of migrations, cultural exchange and international cooperation.
Our workgroup gathers experts in different fields:
Pamela Aikpa Gnaba (MeticciaMente) – communication, information strategies, anti fake news actions
Andrea Casale – hygiene and prevention
Gordon Mensah – start-up development and small business opportunities
Mehret Tewolde (Le Reseau / IABW) – small business development and networking
Viviana Brun – innovation and technologies
Cecilia Barberis – gender equality and women’s empowerment
Cleophas Adrien Dioma – (Le reseau / IABW) organization
Roberto Curzio (Taxibrousse) – engineering, technical feasibility
Federico Monica (Taxibrousse) – organization, low-tech and low-cost solutions, participative strategies.
COVID FREE toolkit is made possible also thanks to the active participation of individuals, communities, organizations and associations.
