Tools with a Mission

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Tools with a Mission is a UK charity based in Ipswich, Suffolk, with a mission to empower people in Africa living in extreme poverty to create their own livelihoods. The group does this by sending trade kits full of tools that are used in skills training centres, offering the trainees a way to put poverty in the past for good and begin their own sustainable careers.

Around 18 containers are sent to rural African communities every year, full of tools that have been collected from across the UK, and refurbished in our refurbishment centres.

‚ÄčThere is also a strong environmental focus, as the work helps to keep over 300 tonnes of tools out of landfills in the UK every year.

There is also a wide range of volunteering opportunities that enrich local UK communities and provide a safe environment for people to make friendships whilst making a difference.
