This project focuses on the Rotary Club of Grantham Kesteven's special initiative to help individuals, families and businesses worldwide to become self-sufficient with the aid of custom-made Trade Aid Boxes. Each box contains specially selected supplies needed to provide people with a head start in recovering from a disaster or other adversity, or simply to start working for themselves for the first time.

How does it work?
A Trade Aid Box is a carefully selected, comprehensive range of brand new tools and equipment suitable for a variety of vital trades, from carpenters to builders, tailors to teachers.
Each Trade Aid Box is sealed in a waterproof wrapping and furnished with easy-to-assemble wheels and handle for ready mobility.
The contents of each box are protected with a waterproof tarpaulin wrapping and, once sealed, the wheels are placed on top for easy access.
The box converts easily to a handcart without emptying – simply pull out the handle, secure with the split pin, pull out the handle and GO!
What's in it?
The contents of each Trade Aid box have been specially chosen to enable a business to re-start after a disaster, for example, or for a person, family or community to work for themselves for the first time. The items for each box are too extensive to list but an idea of the comprehensive nature of the contents can be seen from the images for the various trades.
What does it cost?
It doesn't matter which trade is selected, a Trade Aid Box costs £399.00 – including shipping to anywhere in the world.
