Geographical remit: 


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 over 300 tonnes of tools every year. We invest in local people, supporting their own communities through grassroots livelihood creating projects. These projects are working to train individuals in trade skills such as carpentry, tailoring and mechanical engineering – a sustainable approach to poverty alleviation in many rural communities.

We believe there is dignity through work and the ability to provide for yourself and your family. We have seen entire communities be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment. We have sent tools to 17 countries across the world. Now we focus our efforts on livelihood creation in Sub-Saharan Africa.
