Mission of tti

Mission of TTI

  • TTI strives to be second to none in the production of middle-level manpower for industry and self-employment.

  • THE FAB LAB: Personal fabrication for local entrepreneurial opportunities.

  • The Fab Lab in Ghana was a year old in July 2005. Before the establishment of the fab lab little did we understand what it really meant, what to do and where to go.

  • Nevertheless, today we have made some remarkable progress.

GOAL

  • Our goal is to identify community problems and find solutions to them; e.g. to convert the abundant renewable energy such as solar and wind to power machines and mechanize our agriculture and local art and craft industry.

Projects

PROJECTS

  • The Fab-lab has initiated some projects which we hope to make into businesses.

  • Among these are the Fufu pounder which will be used to prepare the most common dish in every Ghanaian home.

  • Secondly, fabricating a local television antenna, which is very costly.

  • We are also working on a refrigeration project using the vortex tube which will be installed in cargo trucks carrying perishable goods from the hinterland to the urban areas.
