My Wave NGO – Design & Carpentry course
My Wave NGO is a youth organization founded and run by educators and seamen, who strive to help at-risk youths to uncover the inner forces inherent in them, in order to face the challenges of life. Their work is unique, multicultural, egalitarian, full of values of sustainability, giving and doing for the community.
We were very happy to collaborate with the NGO and created a 6-session design & carpentry course, in which the youths went through a challenging and instructive design journey, from getting to know upcycled wood, product design from scratch, drawing and model building, using carpentry tools, pallet disassembly and finally – building a giant surfboard rack.
The process was significant for all of us, passing our knowledge to the youths, who opened their heads (and hands). They now can pass on the knowledge within the NGO and continue to take part in our pallet revolution.
* The activity was made possible thanks to the donation of a generous donor.
