The Shed Project

All of our gift boxes are now hand-made with recycled & sustainable materials by The Shed Project – a community space providing opportunities for the differently-abled - therefore each box is unique and reusable

 

The Shed Project Kapiti is an organisation based in Paraparaumu, on the Kapiti Coast, New Zealand. They been involved in providing training and employment opportunities for local disabled and disadvantaged people since founding in 2014

"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its entire life believing it is stupid." - Albert Einstein

The Shed Project aims to improve the lives of the differently abled and the communities where they live. This is achieved by:

ENABLING

differently abled people to achieve their personal goals, live independently, and enjoy happy, healthy and meaningful lives

OPPORTUNITY

can be hard to find for the differently abled. We provide help in getting around barriers to opportunity, employment, and advocacy

INCLUSION

in the community is a vital part of life, but the differently abled can find it hard to achieve. The Shed Project aims to change this, generally by participation in social and fundraising events, setting up and administering community enterprises to create employment, and other activities fostering community well-being

By enabling the differently abled to gain opportunity and inclusion, The Shed Project changes attitudes and beliefs towards the differently abled

 

To put all this in a nutshell, The Shed Project endeavours to show our people that They Can - something that often is lacking in their lives
