We mean everyone – Oke Men in Sheds is proud to be part of a big global family with over 3,000 sheds across the globe in 12 countries! The young people in this photo say it all! This is an example of the global work we at Oke Men in Sheds, are proud to play a small part in.

These students are taking part in a project set up by Amigos Charity, based in Barnstaple. Amigos support young people and families in Uganda to gain work and life skills; they also enable young students from the UK to undertake field projects to learn from cultural exchange. Take a look at Amigos web site to see their wonderful work (www.amigos.org.uk)! Oke Men in Sheds support them in various ways e.g. sending surplus tools such as sewing machines & woodwork tools.

You may not know that many local young people also benefit from our Oke Shed, we currently have a Duke of Edinburgh student working with us – and we work with local schools in Okehampton to support woodwork skills lessons. So, let’s raise a toast to another wonderful year in 2024 filled with opportunities to make new friends around the world and support our young people to learn new skills!
