Resource Distribution To Communities In Need
The WERX Foundation Inc (WERX) adopts an eco business model which focuses on building and strengthening communities through collaborative partnerships and networks.
WERX creates linkages between business and community to move both valuable and discarded resources between sectors, so they may be successfully re-engineered to open new work education and employment opportunities for people who are disadvantaged through disability or other life circumstance and unable to participate in mainstream support services. This is a complex partnership, with an array of business goals. Our activities range from the acquittal of redundant assets, to social enterprise initiatives re-furbishing assets for re-use, to resourcing community agencies for individuals in need, to providing marginalised people with pre-employment training and skills experience using a learn-by-doing framework.
Further, we contribute to sustainable and environmental waste management processes, partnering with ISO accredited services in the disposal of unusable equipment and parts in a responsible operation that values our environment and long-term climate action goals.
Our principle enterprises facilitating this re-distribution of resources, are:
B2C Community IT Recyclers is a ‘social enterprise’ focussed on the refurbishment and recycling of donated, discarded or redundant IT equipment, and their re-marketing and re-deployment through the project into communities in need.
Still In the Box
