Empowering people with the tools that
create livelihoods and transform lives
Who We Are
We are a Christian charity that collects unwanted usable tools, refurbishes them, sorts them into trade tool kits and sends them to the developing world for livelihood creation.
We send around 18 containers filled with a total of around 225 tonnes of tools every year. These tools range from sewing machines and knitting machines to carpentry tools and mechanics tools. Read more about the impact of tools on our blog.
We are dedicated to providing livelihood-creating tools to skills centres in Africa. These tools give the recipients the means to generate their own income, create their own businesses, and build a mindset of independence, not reliance.
The impact goes much further than this, however. Our work supports African livelihoods, UK communities, and the fight against climate change.
We have loads of stories about lives that have been transformed by tools on our blog. We also post about what's going on in the UK, so make sure to have a read if you want to know more about our work!

Our work is mostly done by volunteers, whether that's driving around collecting tools, refurbishing them, or helping out in the office. Have a look at our roles.
Support our work by covering the costs involved with putting together a tool kit, as a donation, or an alternative gift on behalf of a loved one.
