Handypack #0 available for evaluation

Thanks to our British friends (and Benedictine monks from London) today we were able to buy first HandyPack set (officially: #0). We will use it for demonstration purposes, to show communities what’s inside and to encourage more donors. Please help us buy first ten of them, dropping your share at https://www.gofundme.com/handypersonpacks

This is how it looks:

To be improved soon by:

  • Adding shoes repair tool
  • Getting bigger toolbox.

HandyPack to the people!

Pavlos, tool expert in Athens’ Leroy Merlin, helped us to get really optimised and inexpensive set of tools for HandyPack v. 1 Click the picture to see the list of content.

Thanks to the growing support we receive, we can start helping more communities in Athens. Instead of single “tool library” (this concept doesn’t really work in squatting environment) we decided to introduce HandyPack — a toolbox full of goodies, which we provide to every willing community. It is a package deal, though: we promise to refill the materials, fix or replace broken tools and help local handy(wo)men if the problem is too big for them. In return we expect proper care and use of tools, credits to LTG for support and working contact with skilled members of the community — for our long term projects. See the full conditions of cooperation here.

So, now the fundraising time: every 200 Euro buys one HandyPack. Please drop some funding at https://www.gofundme.com/handypersonpacks or contact us directly — if you are in Athens, we can go together and buy a HandyPack directly at the magazine.
