Woodworking Machinery, Tools and Equipment for Ethiopia

Requested by

International Development Partnerships Verified non-profit organisation

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

As an organisation that feels very strongly about the environment, we are acutely aware of the massive potential for recycling and reusing assets, which would otherwise go to waste. Our project will divert significant amounts of reusable equipment and furniture from landfill and support rural health centres, hospitals and schools in Northern Ethiopia.

What is your project and how will it help?

The setting up of the a repair and maintenance workshop will allow the young and the long term unemployed with the perfect opportunity to acquire wide range of skills both in an office environment as well as practical skills which could enable them to turn their hands to anything in this ever changing job market which might even lead to becoming self employed as well as providing charities and community groups, people with low income and small businesses with discount furniture, appliances and IT equipment.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Volunteer Support – We have already secured rent-free access to a 6,901 ft2 warehouse in Westway Industrial Estate, Park Royal, West London from SEGRO plc. With volunteer support, this will allow us to collect, sort and refurbish unwanted items from organisations in both the corporate and public sectors.
