Users of French search engine financed a FabLab in Northern Togo

(Togo First) - In Togo, A FabLab was recently created in the Savanna region last weekend, French radio RFI reports. This is a public facility where computer-controlled equipment and machinery are provided and used to develop projects. “The construction of this high-tech facility in the northern part of Togo was financed by internet users browsing the French search engine Lilo.org,” RFI said.     

Clément Le Bras, co-founder of the new FabLab also developed the mentioned search engine. This platform monetizes searches it records. “It is fully free, nothing new there. You just visit the lilo.org search engine, but what most people are not aware of is that each search generates cash,” Le Bras said.

“Every year, each person using the search engine generates about €30, with adverts present at the top of the engine. We collect these proceeds and spend half of what we get on projects. Currently, we are working on the Emmabuntüs project in Northern Togo,” he added.
