Social impact and skills sharing: EBUKI earth
building courses with ‘hard to reach’ groups, 2019
We are working towards a longer term programme on a
more substantial build but that needs significant resources. This might
be something we can consider at EBUKI and with our developing
partnerships in the future.
We are delighted to be reaching out to people to create positive
and meaningful experiences that give hope and encouragement. We have
developed a course that has been received very positively in Scotland
and we look forward to rolling it out around the UK in due course.
In an ideal world we might create the earth builders of the future
but, for now, we are giving people who really need a break, skills,
knowledge and awareness to make some positive changes, to give them
confidence in their abilities, and to help them look after both their own
well-being and the health of the wider world.
Simple projects build confidence
social impact and skills sharing project was
initially funded by The Tudor Trust giving Ebuki the confidence to
initiate discussions with other organisations to match fund the
practical workshops. This combined funding has allowed us to both
deliver the workshops and develop the materials for further training.
