PRACTICAL, TANGIBLE AND COMPREHENSIVE

The projects supported by Gered Gereedschap will further improve technical vocational training and entrepreneurship in Africa. Our support is practical, tangible and comprehensive: 20 complete sets of carpentry tools, a fully equipped sewing workshop, additional training for technical vocational teachers. All our support is directed towards one purpose: promoting technical craftsmanship with quality tools, knowledge and skills. For each project we work together with reliable local partners. With several projects in one region we contribute to the growth in employment. Will you help us making it work?

SOLAR ENERGY OFFERS YOUNG PEOPLE A SUSTAINABLE WAY FORWARD

MESHCP in Uganda makes sustainable energy accessible to the local population. The solar panels that are installed are made by the organisation itself, in combination with a training programme to become a solar panel technician.
