"We volunteer because we love the friendship and the opportunity to make a positive difference to so many lives."  Merve and Sue, Ipswich

Thanks for taking the time to visit 'TimeforTWAM'

So who are we and why give time to support our work?


Well, put simply, we have supported recycling and cared for our environment for over thirty years.  We have saved thousands of tonnes of tools from landfill.


In doing this we have helped literally tens of thousands of people across the developing world to gain the dignity and respect of lifting themselves out of poverty through the provision of livelihood creating tools.  Our mission is to respect their right to know far better than us, what they need to do to change their lives and we support them in doing this.  

Finally, we give a sense of purpose and pride to people across the UK who volunteer with us.  Many are retired, others have learning difficulties and some just find life very hard and need a place of safety and welcome.  We're honoured to be that place for so many.

So if you want to share our vision and support our work, we would love you to look through our site and come and join us.  We're a Christian charity who welcome everybody of our faith, other faith and no faith. 


We just need people who will share our passion to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and help us send them to the developing world for livelihood creation.
