TR Fastenings Supports Ethiopia Sports Project

TR Fastenings Holland is supporting Respo International, an organisation that offers solutions to enable disabled children in developing countries to participate in sports and other activities. 

Since 2005, in collaboration with Stichting Dir and Hogeschool Windesheim, Respo International has been conducting sports projects for people with disabilities in Ethiopia. These projects have led to the establishment of the DIRES House of Sport in Addis Ababa. DIRES House of Sport has grown into a private sports centre from where trainers organise weekly sports activities for a network of different schools for children with disabilities.

Patrick Italiaander, Buyer at TR’s Holland location comments:“My cousin, Nino Italiaander, is studying to become a gym teacher and is going to Ethiopia with a group of fellow students to help train disabled young adults to become teachers for the children. This will not only mean that the children will be getting regular exercise but it will also be giving these young adults a career.”
