Volunteering opportunities with Tools with a Mission
Welcome to Time for TWAM, the volunteering website for Tools with a Mission. We're thrilled to have you here and excited to share our mission with you. If you want to learn more about us, visit our main website at twam.uk.
We are a UK-based Christian charity that refurbishes donated tools and sends them to African skills centres for livelihood creation. We're proud to say that we ship out around 17 containers filled with roughly 225 tonnes of life-transforming tools each year.
By doing so, we have helped tens of thousands of people in the developing world gain the dignity and respect of lifting themselves out of poverty. Our mission is to empower people to change their lives, and we provide them with the necessary tools and support to do so.
But our work wouldn't be possible without our volunteers.
Joining our team will not only give you a sense of purpose and pride, but it will also make a huge impact on people's lives across the world. We welcome everyone regardless of their background, faith or experience level. Our volunteers come from all walks of life; some are retired, some have learning difficulties, and others simply need a safe and caring place to be. We're honoured to be that place for over 400 volunteers nationwide.
We also take pride in our green credentials. By refurbishing over 400 tonnes of tools that would otherwise end up in landfills, we're making a positive impact on the environment too.
If you want to share our vision and support our work, there are many ways that you could do so. We welcome all abilities and everybody of our faith, other faiths, and no faith.
Please note that we can only accept volunteer applications from people living in England and Wales.
We need people who will share our passion for collecting unwanted tools, refurbishing them, sorting them into trade kits, and helping us send them to the developing world for livelihood creation.
If you have any questions about volunteering, please reach out to Paul Daley, our Volunteering Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're excited to have you join us on this incredible journey!
"TWAM’s vision for helping the underprivileged by providing recycled tools really caught my imagination and spurred me on to get involved. I find this a real blessing."

“It gives us structure and purpose in doing something much bigger than ourselves. We miss it when we don’t come in with our friends.”
It gives me the opportunity to meet many generous and thoughtful people. Despite what you might think if you read the press there is a lot of goodwill in this world!
