Handicap International / Humanity & Inclusion (HI) is an independent and impartial international solidarity association, which intervenes in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflicts and disasters. Working alongside disabled and vulnerable people, she acts and testifies to meet their essential needs and improve their living conditions. It is committed to promoting respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

Since 2005, Handicap International has been collecting used prostheses.
The volunteers’ mission is precious: they dismantle the prostheses and extract the components in good condition (feet, knees, etc.). Volunteers then carefully clean the items, repackage them and methodically store them until they are shipped to partner centers, including in sub-Saharan Africa.
This activity thus makes it possible to equip beneficiaries who could not afford it.
Volunteers also contribute to the life of the workshop (receiving/sending packages, etc.).
In joy and good humor, each volunteer finds their place according to their skills.




The Recycleg HI workshop is located in Vénissieux in the immediate vicinity of the “La Borelle’” Tram T4 station.

Commitment requested: 4 half-days/month minimum
Time slots: Tuesday and Thursday morning (subject to change).
Do not hesitate to contact us if you are available for other half-days.

Start date: April 2024
