WORKAID is a charity dedicated to helping people help themselves.

WORKAID Mission Statement

WORKAID tackles poverty by supplying disadvantaged people with the tools they need to acquire practical skills and become self supporting.

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.


The best way we have of explaining our vision is to provide a short video showing how we deliver tools to disadvantaged people.

About 10 tonnes of equipment get shipped in every container and about 8 containers are sent to central east Africa every year.

Tools are also provided to needy causes in the UK.
