Waste for Life is built on partnerships

Our Waste for Life partners comprise an international network of people who pool their talents and resources to develop inventive, community driven, needs-based technologies. We freely disseminate those technologies and apply them where we can to help redress the social and ecological injustices that disproportionately affect people who live on society’s margins.

Our network is eclectic and cooperative because we know that problems know no disciplinary boundaries.

As Ashokline Thayalan continues to improve the fire retardancy of our waste plastic/natural fibre roofing tiles in his laboratory at Jaffna University, we have some exciting news coming to us from our US project, Standing People Together: we've partnered with Sullivan West Elementary School's PTSO to offer Autumn 2019 and Spring 2020 after-school forest exploratorium sessions for grades 1-3, and will continue Saturday sessions at Cala Munda this fall as well. Funding for the Autumn after-school program has just been awarded to us by Healthy Community Initiatives Grant from Sullivan Renaissance in recognition of the holistic health benefits our forest exploratorium offers local school children. ...

We ❤️ partnering with communities across the UK, through local clubs. If you share our vision to see poverty alleviated in Sri Lanka and people freed from a lifestyle of survival rather than living, we would love to partner with you!

In September 2017, The Inner Wheel Club of Ware, chose us as their Overseas Charity of the Year (17/18), following a talk at a meeting from our Ambassador Charlotte. Throughout the year, the club, made up of 30 members have held fundraising events for our projects, including a community lunch, with a raffle, raising £500 for a well for a family in need in Jaffna, Sri Lanka!

Alongside this, their President co-ordinated a collection of clothing from members and family and friends of Inner Wheel, Ware, which was more than enough to FULLY RESTOCK and FILL our DP Store in Jaffna, offering affordable clothing to HUNDREDS of people in the region. Alongside this, old bedsheets, curtains and other old materials were also collected to be sent to Jaffna for the work with Waste for Life - Argentina - Sri Lanka, through our partner charity The Paalam Project.

A huge "thank you" for all their hard work and commitment to support us!

No organisation or club is TOO SMALL (or big!) to make an impact or difference. Talk to us today on: [email protected] to find out how you can get involved!
