Foundation Tools To Work
What we do
Tools To Work enables people to become self sufficient. Skilled volunteers in our workshop refurbish and revise tools together with unemployed persons. The tools are intended for vocational training and small scale entrepreneurs in Africa and for families living below the poverty line in the Netherlands.
In the Netherlands
Volunteers, people taking part in a social reactivation plan or as daytime occupation are gaining skills and experience, working in our workplace. This enables them to reintergrate into society. In addition underprivileged children can receive a bike or computer for their schooling.
In Africa Tools To Work promotes vocational skills for young adults. We provide goods to schools and starting entrepreneurs on request from a local organization. Our focus countries are Uganda, Kenya and Sierra Leone. In Africa our experienced volunteers also train people in maintenance and repairs of goods.
