Discover Our Teambuilding Event
Your team will assemble mechanical prosthetic hands for amputees in developing countries. The focus is intense, and you’ll forget that you’re participating in a team-building event. To add to the challenge, each person will have one hand “covered” during the build process to simulate a “stump.” This helps to build empathy and connection with the recipient of the hand, and also promotes teamwork – it takes 2 to 3 people to screw in a bolt!
This csr teambuilding event is absolutely ‘real’ and connects your team in a powerful way through a common purpose. Your team will be proud of their achievements and that their company chose to make a difference this way.
Once each hand is assembled, it will be put into a unique “hand bag” that your team has decorated. You’ll then take a photo with the bag and hand, which will be packed together to be sent to the recipient. This way, they can see a picture of the people who made their hand for them. It really puts a smile on their faces knowing who made their hand.
At the end of the event we share REAL stories and videos from actual recipients that really brings home how much of a difference the hands will make. It is a fantastic way to complete the activity as it ensures that all participants are left energised and with a renewed sense of purpose.
Furthermore, we aim to take a picture of the recipients with their new hands and deliver the photo back to your team. By doing this, you truly know what happened to the hand(s) your team has made. Moreover, it is a significant morale boost for the team when they can see who will be using the hands and for whom they have changed the world.
