About Us

Tools For Solidarity is a non 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.

We collect, refurbish and ship out old and unwanted hand tools and sewing machines to skilled tradespeople in Africa. This act of solidarity enables them to become more self reliant and have some hope for the future.

What People Say About Us

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.

Tailor in Runzewe-Bukombe

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.
