Our Tool Collectors
Join our community of Tool Ambassadors, the backbone of TWAM's mission to transform lives in Africa through refurbished donated tools. As a Tool Ambassador, you will play a vital role in collecting tools from the general public, either by personally picking them up or providing a tool drop-off point.
We'll provide you with a TWAM email and put your name, area, and email on our website so people can easily find you. You'll also receive a TWAM polo shirt and fleece and our support every step of the way.
As a friendly face in the community, you'll represent TWAM and spread the word about TWAM's work. By becoming a Tool Ambassador, you'll not only help us save hundreds of tonnes of tools from landfills but also play a crucial role in creating livelihoods and fighting poverty in Africa.
Without our Tool Ambassadors, our work wouldn't be possible. Join us today and be part of the transformational impact we're making in Africa.
One of our Volunteer Tool Ambassadors
''I love the very random nature of calls. One day I can be called to pick up chisels which a regular supporter sharpens and fits into home-turned handles, then the next I can be picking up 3 sewing machines from places in 3 adjoining towns!
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!''
This role is home based as you will collect tools from members of the public in your own locality.
You can therefore live anywhere in England and Wales
(excluding Devon and Cornwall).
Members of the public may contact you at any time. You will arrange a time that suits you to go and pick up their tools.
