The project offers young people from gang-infested communities a chance to do something better with their lives.

The Kamers/Makers fair in Stellenbosch will be launching an internship programme called the Embryonix project. The project offers school kids anything from a day to a few weeks with the Maker who fits their talent/passion/interest to ‘look ’n learn’ about a future career.

Jeremy Doveton-Helps, Brand Strategist at KAMERS says the project is all about giving a realistic chance to do something better for children in gang-infested communities.
