Face It with Face Shields

Short description

Making reusable face shields in Zambia using locally available products.


We at Barefeet Theatre, a local NGO founded in Zambia in 2006, have been assembling face shields since early April and distributing them to our frontline workers throughout the country. As of today, we have assembled and distributed 8,350 face shields and have funding to make an additional 6,650 (totalling 15,000). Each face shields costs $0.50 and we use locally available products (i.e. foam, PVC, and straps) instead of using 3D printers which are not available in Zambia and many other countries.
