At Workaid we tackle poverty by supplying disadvantaged people with the tools they need to acquire practical skills and become self supporting.
- That self-help is a key driver of sustainable development
- In the re-use and re-cycling of our world’s resources
- Voluntary work is a foundation stone for positive development
- In the practice of non-discrimination, respect and equality of opportunity for all.
Tools and equipment are collected from all over the UK, refurbished and sent to vocational training projects and self-help groups, mostly in East Africa and in the UK.
You can watch a short time lapse video showing volunteers filling Container Emmanuel for Zambia, giving many facts and figures about Workaid’s work HERE
