The Variety Club of NSW
Inten is proud to be associated and sponsor the Variety Club of NSW. The Variety Club is the world's greatest children's charity. Their mission is to raise funds for distribution to children who are disadvantaged or who suffer from a disability.
In some cases, funds are made available to benefit a particular child. Variety may also make specific donations to a school project or to the children's ward of a hospital.
Inten has been associated with Variety for the past two years. We and our subcontractors are proud to be associated with such a noble cause.
Inten, where it can keeps salvaged materials and donates them to schools and farms. We have donated much timber and metal off cuts etc to schools for woodwork / metalwork (industrial design) classes and have donated redunated steel framed buildings to struggling NSW farmers. Every little bit counts.
Habitat for Humanity
Inten is proud to be sponsoring Monty Nguy on his 2 weeks in Thailand volunteering with the house building program in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Australia. Habitat for Humanity is a non profit organization, which builds simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with low income families.
Monty will join the Global Village Team to work in the small village of Udon Thani situated in the north east of Thailand contributing to the construction of timber framed, iron roof and concrete block homes.
Inten was proud to sponsor Matthew Lloyd on his two months in Bandah Aceh working on Father Chris Riley’s Youth Off The Streets Orphanage Project.
Matt loaded up the rest of the group on their flight into Bandah Aceh with urgently needed hand and power tools, flood lights and plumbing supplies that Inten had provided for the construction of the orphanage.
Matt was the plumber on the job and ended up sourcing materials and directing a mixed workforce of locals and volunteers and still found time to teach English at the local high school.
Matt is pictured in front of the 500 tonne PLTD Apung 1 ferry which was swept two kilometres inland to Uleh-leh north west of Bandah Aceh by the force of the tsunami. The crew was unharmed and the ferry now occupies a whole city block. Its generator is used to power the neighbourhood and there are plans to turn it into a memorial to the tsunami.
