BloLab is a Benin-based startup that will teach people how to build recycled component computers for free. The process involves hosting free workshops on building computers for public attendance. The only caveat is that attendees will have to bring their own materials.
The resulting computers are named 'Jerry' because they are built out of old computer components and recycled jerrycans. Attendees can simply bring used jerrycans and old computers to the workshop and they will be walked through the process of building a fully operational computer.
BloLab believes that owning a computer is essential in the current world. The Jerry is meant to bring access to computers to individuals from all walks of life, opening up a great deal of opportunities for these individuals, all while performing a social good by recycling old waste products.
