"Helping People to find their Dignity"

At WORKAID, we are committed to tackling poverty in a practical way by helping disadvantaged people, overseas and in the UK, to help themselves through practical skills training.

Unwanted tools and equipment are collected from all over the UK and refurbished by a team of dedicated volunteers at the WORKAID workshop.

The refurbished tools are then sent to vocational training projects where they help vulnerable and disadvantaged people to learn trade skills and start their own businesses.

Each year, WORKAID helps over 8,000 people to 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.
