Makers Unite

September 2016 – August 2017


Makers Unite makes products together with newcomers. Their signature design are laptop sleeves and bags made out of used life-vests left behind on Greek shores.


People not Projects consulted them on their programme, wrote project proposals and obtained funding. PnP obtained an assignment from the company Ecolab to organise a teambuilding workshop for 150 of their international staff, with newcomers involved as trainers. PnP was project coordinator. 


Together with Syrian teacher Amar Al Sasa, PnP also set up the Dutch  conversation group Thee & Taal, with Amar preparing the classes and leading the conversation group in Dutch and English.
