Donations in kind

The use of equipment and tools is an important cornerstone of our projects. Donated, but still functional, older equipment and tools are often used. This allows us to set up workshops and establish an efficient, functioning system. By reusing such resources, we can work sustainably and at the same time advance the implementation of our projects.

*If a donation receipt is desired, please enclose an invoice with the number of items donated and the price. For example: metal frame 1 euro. The text: “The goods were given to you as a donation.”
Important for donations in kind:
– The donation should be complete! Equipment including everything needed for operation
necessary accessories such as power supplies, replacement bulbs if necessary, etc.
– Of course, the devices must be functional and generally in good condition.
– Frames should be relatively fashionable or classic, not old-fashioned designs.
– No drilling goggles or nylon goggles. These can often be due to missing
Equipment or unsuitable glass materials cannot be glazed on site.
– The EDA does not accept used glasses. Workshops will be set up and, if possible, individual glasses will be fitted. (You are welcome to receive used glasses send)
– We no longer accept large devices such as automatic grinders and other machines with electronic components because the time-consuming transport is not worth it, customs duties are levied, and it must be guaranteed in the destination country that these devices can be repaired.

Proper disposal on site is often not possible.
