Planning a Shipping Project

What is an Emmanuel Foundation shipping project?

An Emmanuel Foundation shipping project is the process of shipping EF inventory anywhere in the world where people would not otherwise have access to the goods and items. This can be done through micro-projects or 40ft shipping containers.

Who is involved in the process?

There are 3 parties that are involved in all shipping projects. The first is Emmanuel Foundations itself. Emmanuel Foundation helps with various aspects of a project including shipping logistics, securing, storing, and transporting goods and items, and general shipping expertise. The second is a sponsor group. These groups can be volunteer groups, professional groups, corporate teams, faith-based groups, school groups, youth groups, and even groups of friends. The last group is the host. The host is the individual or organization receiving the shipped container and goods. When these 3 groups come together in harmony to work for a common purpose of sending items to help people in need, great things can happen!

One reason Emmanuel Foundation exists is to help and assist sponsor groups navigate how to best send items and goods to the people and organizations who need them.

Shipping Containers; 40ft of Hope

Micro-projects are a simpler and smaller option for shipping. You may already have a venue to send items to those in need. In this situation, all Emmanuel Foundation provides is high-quality inventory for your project whatever the size. Examples might be if you have spare space on a business container, or have a container of your own that you are interested in using to help others.
