dooiy launch party

Celebrating the start of the platform

team portrait On February 4th, 2023, we proudly launched the dooiy platform at iAfrikayam community garden in Nomzamo / Cape Town. Heartfelt gratitude to all our friends and partners who came along to celebrate this milestone with us.

It was such a special event with 150+ people, workshops, lots of show case hacks and great music. Thanks to Mawande Sigwinta and family for graciously hosting us, Tinta Tribe for their incredible performance, Climate Actions Now for their continous support and equipment, Siyabonga Stengana for his exceptional hydrodipping of shoes, Lulama Bangani and Barbie for entertaining the kids and all the other wonderful helpers who made this possible. Special thanks to Camille, Chris, and Bathandwe for their unwavering dedication and wholehearted efforts, which truly transformed the day into the extraordinary event that it was.

You don‘ t have to be an expert to start making with dooiy. Just choose an easy hack and get going. After you made a few, I am sure that you will come up with your own ideas.
