Mashup, a non-profit organisation that is managing the Westbury Youth Centre (WYC), received a fully renovated container as a donation that will continue to empower young entrepreneurs from the organisation’s training and incubation programmes.

The donation was made by the centre’s partners Bartlett Construction and Outotec which is a Finnish company aimed at providing technologies and service for the metal and mineral processing industries.

The container was donated and renovated by Outotec and transport and delivery costs were covered by Bartlett.

“As for the use, it will extend on our entrepreneur learning incubation for small businesses programmes in the form of a tuck shop that will form the base of a recreation space that we are hoping to build in the courtyard,” said the Business Manager of Mashup community development, Tracy Dennis.

The courtyard which management is hoping to build will provide a social area where students from the centre, as well as residents from the community, will be able to have their eats and relax.

The organisational director, Reginald Botha said in a previous interview that they would also like to have an entertainment section where various artists from the community could make use of the platform to build their brands.
