TOOLS FOR SOLIDARITY
We believe that we should all live simply so that others can simply live!
Tools For Solidarity is a not-for-profit organisation in Belfast. Our work is fully run by international, local and supported volunteers. And the main focus of our charity is to support artisans in the poorest parts of the world and mostly in the countries of Africa. This act of solidarity enables them to become more self-reliant and have some hope for the future.

Our Local Impact
Tools For Solidarity is proud to have an international impact on sustainability in the world. We also wanted to bring this idea to Northern Ireland and managed to create a few programmes that we run on an annual basis in Belfast.

What People Say About Us
Donations take our word for it, at least that’s what our supporters say:
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.
I definitely recommend volunteering with Tools. The project helps you to open your eyes on life of people abroad. As well as can change your life. As it happened to me.
The MSTC-SIDO project made many changes in the lives of most tailors in Sengerema. Aside from that the project also enables our locals to gain entrepreneurship skills.
Our main news of the charity are posted on Social Media, so make sure to follow us there.
