|Organisation:||Tools with a Mission|
The main role of a Tool Ambassador is to be our first contact in their local community. Our Tool Ambassadors are the people that members of the public contact to donate tools.
Our Tool Ambassadors collect the donated tools, load them into boxes (easy to get from supermarkets), and store them ready for one of our vans to collect. They then arrange with their local Van Manager for them to be collected by a TWAM van.
The charitable work of Tools with a Mission is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world for livelihood creation. We send around 20 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year. To do this we rely on a national volunteer workforce and welcome people of all ages and abilities and of any faith and no faith.
We do this because we want to support local people supporting their own communities through sustainable livelihood creating projects. We believe there is dignity through work and the ability to provide for yourself and your family. We believe entire communities can be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment.
Tool Ambassadors need to be enthusiastic about what we do and the transforming power of tools. Many
people donating tools do so following bereavement, so we need sensitive people willing to stop and talk,
rather than rush off. In others words, kind and friendly people!
Legally we will also need to check you have adequate motor insurance and your car has an MOT.
This is an incredibly rewarding role as you get to meet the general public and share with our story with them.
Many are so grateful that we are taking their tools rather than seeing them go to landfill. You’ll get a real buzz
from many of the collections.
