Stanley support African project

UK tool brand Stanley have lent their support to a team of volunteers working on an ambitious building project in Tanzania, Africa.

Stanley support African project

The company donated tools after being approached by Child Reach International to help renovate a local school and equip a vocational training centre in the remote village of Mahida, in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania.

The 10-strong team of volunteers completed the work in less than two weeks, including installing electrical wiring and lighting, building a new latrine with water connection and erecting a security fence around the 1.5-acre site – all with Stanley Tools, which were donated to the locals after the project was finished.

Stanley head of marketing David Osborne said: “Stanley was delighted to be involved in this project and it is very rewarding to think our tools have helped build a school and training centre in a village that desperately needed it.”

Project leader Sean Murphy added: “The hand tools and equipment were a god send and I would like to personally thank the team at Stanley for their support. Not only did they make light work of the tasks at hand, but the equipment was warmly received by the locals who simply cannot get hold of such high quality tools.”
