National Hands Network (NHN) believes that meaningfully employed, engaged and entrepreneurial people are not borne. THEY ARE MADE.

Traditional education provides little for marginalised people that fall between the cracks.

NHN provides an extra curricular solutions based learning programme offered to people in marginalised rural & regional areas. NHN delivers its tailored manufacturing programmes via their NHN TRADE YOURSELF programme. A practical skills problem solving model, assessing local issues and returning local solutions, learning and outcomes in an non intrusive collaboration with local community.

In Australia the National Hands Network harnesses natural resources, talented Australians young and old to work together to create paid work opportunities that are building up their local communities and creating jobs.

The NHN organisation drives 3000 kms each week delivering technology, educational resources and business networks that otherwise only exist in capital cities. Delivering global business tools to marginalised communities is a big part of the answer to their sustainability and also part of the solution to a bigger National economic problem, Australian Made

NHN programmes targets existing, but most importantly the next generation, addressing the toxic exodus of the brightest and best to big cities.

Melissa Liu

Lisa Chesters is a member of the Labour party in the House of Representatives. She was welcomed by the CEO of National Hands Network Mickael Pinto and the product developer Miranda Pereira to meet the NHN’s Young Manufacturers Group in Bendigo, The Woodgang. Lisa was given the opportunity to see, touch and play with the innovative products being developed by NHN and the WoodGang.  She received the original brief given to the team, handled original prototypes, concept drawings and was then given a preview of the new product in the category of family/kids activities that the NHN and Woodgang have developed for launch in August 2015. The raw materials used are recycled wood palettes. NHN and the Woodgang thanks Lisa Chesters for her generous time and spirit.
