About Us

Tools For Solidarity is a non profit organisation in Northern Ireland that runs entirely by volunteers.
Our charity supports artisans in the poorest countries of the world
by providing high quality refurbished hand tools, sewing machines and training
through local refurbishment centres within the regions themselves.
This act of solidarity enables local people to have technical skills and knowledge to be more self reliant.

Find out how you can help by donating tools and sewing machines or contact us directly.

What People Say About Us

I definitely recommend volunteering with Tools. Project helps you to open eyes on life of people abroad. As well as can change your life. As it happened to me.

Lorette, Volunteer

The MSTC-SIDO project made many changes in the lives of most tailors in Sengerema. Aside from that the project also enable our locals to gain entrepreneurship skills.

Coordinator, Sengerema

I bought 2 machines from SIDO-MSTC which made dramatic changes for my business. Later on I even managed to employ two people to help me with my work.
