We have a network of 750 volunteers across the UK, all playing an important part in delivering change for people in Africa.
With a team of around 150 volunteers based at our headquarters and workshop, and a further 600 across the UK – including 45 local groups – volunteers are crucial to our work. They collect tools, carry out repairs and refurbishments on donated tools, pack kits and prepare shipments, give talks and organise events to raise awareness of our work, and raise funds for us.
Volunteering is a wonderful way to use your skills and knowledge, learn new things, meet people, and to play a meaningful part in livelihood development in Africa. We are always keen to hear from people interested in being involved, and can offer support and training. Please do contact us to find out more!
Tools for Self Reliance hosts volunteers through the Erasmus+ European Voluntary Service programme, which gives young people the opportunity to travel and work in another country. Our current volunteers are sharing their experiences through their blog!
