Workaid is a charity, headquartered in Chesham, Buckinghamshire. We collect unwanted tools and equipment from across the country, refurbish and distribute them to people in need, to help them learn a skill and earn a living.
At Workaid, we are committed to tackling poverty in a practical way by supporting young people in East Africa and in the UK to build sustainable livelihoods through skills training.
Unwanted tools and equipment are donated and refurbished by a team of enthusiastic volunteers at the Workaid workshop.
The refurbished tools are then sent to vocational training projects where they help young people learn trade skills and start their own businesses.
Every year, Workaid helps over 9,000 people break the cycle of poverty and rebuild their lives. We assist projects working with orphans, street children, unemployed teenagers, disabled people, people living with HIV/AIDS, widows and refugees.
By working with carefully monitored projects we are able to make a difference to individuals and families and help communities to build a brighter future together.
