Repair Cafés are opening up all over the world, in schools, churches and youth centres.

At one Belgian college, 'dysfunctional devices' belonging to members of the community are brought in and repaired by students. As the head said: "It helps them enhance their skills, while raising their awareness on issues of sustainability."
Martine Postma, director of Repair Café International also says it's about education: "Our volunteers are happy to show their neighbours the basics of repairing, but the real change will come when repair skills are put on the curriculum once more."
At Sidmouth's Repair Café, it's also not just about fixing stuff. It's also about showing people why things have broken down. And if spare parts are needed, then advice is always given - and so even those whose gadget isn't immediately fixed leave happy.
The next Repair Café is on Saturday, May 25, 10am to 1pm, at the Youth Centre in Manstone Lane.

Young individuals putting their skills into effect, repairing parts, it’s so cool. Being a college student myself, I’m more intrigued as to how the finances work of this café. Like, with free business dissertation topics provided by top scholars, not only I’m getting great compositions designed, but I’ve come across key strategies that would help put the repair café more known. Even my grannie would show up with her broken toaster.
