Using digital manufacturing technology to address climate change
Qubix Robotics offers a range of products, including personal protective equipment (PPE) for rural health workers made from recycled plastic waste, educational radio kits for teaching public school children about STEM education and sustainability, and rapid prototyping services for local hardware start-ups and SMEs.
Their services also include training and mentorship programs for young people in Malawi to help develop their skills in entrepreneurship and digital manufacturing.
Kachere Women Group and Mudi River Project are key partners in Qubix Robotics' business model as they serve as valuable waste collectors. These organisations collect plastic waste from the local community, which Qubix Robotics then purchases and uses to create its products.
Qubix Robotics collaborates with local health organizations and educational institutions to distribute its products, further strengthening its ties to the local community and promoting sustainable development.
