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.


National Hands Network: COLLABORATION AT IT'S BEST!!

National Hands Network YMG Bendigo build a Christmas Tree for the JMG: Good Eggs Wedderburn.

In November each year Wedderburn holds an annual Christmas tree festival. The National Hands Network runs its programmes in Wedderburn a rural location that is 2 hours and 20 mins from Melbourne, Australia.

74 kilometres down the road from Wedderburn in Bendigo the National Hands Network YMG programme decided to surprise the local JMG: Good Eggs!! They developed an interesting Xmas Tree concept using recycled wooden palettes for the JMG: Good Eggs kids in Wedderburn to decorate and enter into the 2014 Wedderburn competition. The tree was made from 72 different sized wooden planks that when held at the core by a pole spiralled to form the natural shape of a tree. The pieces were cut and finely sanded by hand so they would be safe for the kids to hold whilst painting and decorating. 

72 separate pieces meant each child in the JMG:Good Eggs programme could put their special mark on an aspect of the final item. Being a modular design also meant it was easy for assembly and disassembly for the Xmas Event.

The National Hands Network JMG: Good Eggs Xmas Tree placed 2nd in its category. Bravo Wedderburn JMG:Good Eggs!!!!

Congratulations must go to the successful collaboration between the two National Hands Network clusters of Wedderburn and Bendigo. That is surely the spirit of christmas joining hands and creating a very unique, yet personalised project together.
