Dear All,

Makers Asylum founders recently put an funding proposal at Indiegogo-
"Save our community MakerSpace in Mumbai"

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/save-our-community-makerspace-in-mumbai#/story

Requesting all you to do your best to make the Maker's Space alive in Mumbai/India.

Story of Makers Asylum Mumbai -

"We started about two years ago, operating from a closet-sized garage in the suburbs. We had one 3D Printer, power and hand tools that were donated by well-wishers. We had a handful of members that gathered to build tables, simple machines and toyed around with electronics. People started to share knowledge and materials to build projects together."

Challenges

The good part is that we’ve ignited the Maker Movement in India. The bad part — we’ve lost the space we’ve called home for the last six months. The design school that let us use a portion of their cafeteria for our activities needs us to vacate. We have till August 31.

In order to continue feeding the hungry community of Makers, we need to find a new space to rent, and soon!

For our community, the risk of losing the space means projects being abandoned midway, practical learning being put on hold and tinkers left without the access to tools that make their ideas grow.
