Stichting Betuwe Wereldwijd

Unverified non-profit organisation

Betuwe Wereldwijd is a non-profit foundation, and has been in existence for around 30 years. In their workshop, the foundation refurbishes used tools (sewing- and knitting machines, bicycles, computers and tools for technical professions), and send these to projects in developing countries. With these items, people can learn a trade or start their own small company.

The tools and machines for use in fields such as textile processing (sewing, knitting), agriculture, administration and many other technical professions enable receivers to think about becoming a carpenter, plumber, car mechanic, electrician, metal worker and bricklayer.

In the Netherlands, The foundation works with people who have special needs (such as autism or a mental health issue), and with volunteers and the (longer term) unemployed.
In developing countries, the refurbished tools go to training centres and other social organisations, and thereby give the most vulnerable in society a chance of work and an income.
