Objectives

Workaid is an award-winning charity, come and join our friendly team! In 2015 we were awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, the equivalent of the MBE for charities. We empower young people to develop the skills and knowledge needed to find gainful employment or start their own business.

Activities

We do this by refurbishing donated tools to a high standard and shipping them to training centres and self-help organisations. We collect all types of tools, donated by the general public. They are cleaned, repaired and refurbished by volunteers, then packaged and sent to community and vocational training groups in East Africa.
