Give as you Live

You can support Tools for Self Reliance every time you shop online through Give as you Live. Create a free account and choose Tools for Self Reliance as your nominated charity.  Every time you buy from participating companies, Give as you Live will receive commission, 50% of which comes back to us directly.

You don’t pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no cost at all to you.

Just remember to start from the Give as you Live website when you want to shop (there’s a handy app you can download too) and choose your store from over 5,500 partners. As long as you visit your stores via the Give as you Live Online link, they’ll know you’re a Give as you Live Online shopper and Tools for Self Reliance will receive a donation every time you complete a transaction.


Amazon Smile

If you shop online through Amazon, you could be supporting us at no extra cost to you!  Create an account with Amazon Smile – it’s completely free and really simple to do.

Select Tools For Self Reliance as your chosen charity.  You can switch between your favourite charities at any time.

Next time you shop online, start by going directly to the Amazon Smile site.  You can browse all of Amazon’s products at the same prices and with the same benefits as you would through Amazon’s main site.  But now every time you make a purchase, we will receive a donation of 0.5% of the net purchase price.

There is no cost to charities or customers, and 100% of the donation generated from eligible purchases goes to the consumer’s charity of choice.  For frequent Amazon users, this additional perk is a great way to give back to charities effortlessly.


Some of our donated tools are not suitable for our projects in Africa; others are surplus to our needs.  Visit our eBay shop to find just the right tool for the job and help fund our training projects in Africa.

Also, did you know that if you sell your own items on eBay you can link to us via eBay for charity?  Your customers will be able to make a discretionary donation to Tools for Self Reliance at the checkout.
