Our Projects and Skills

Since 1986 Brass Tacks has worked on approximately 250 projects, mainly in Europe and Sub-Sahara Africa.

Our projects have including the construction, repair and maintenance (building, bricklaying, carpentry, electrical work, plumbing, plastering, painting, etc.) of churches, schools, hospitals, training centres and houses.

Besides using those with demonstrated skills, we have benefitted from help from people who have a willing hand and are happy to learn under supervision.

Gap Year Programme

Brass Tacks are operating in partnership with First-Serve, a gap year programme for 18-25 year olds. We have recently launched a First-Serve practical course for any who are practically minded. More information about First Serve at www.first-serve.org.uk.
