This is a great role for someone who likes to show initiative, likes meeting people, getting involved in their community and is interested in livelihood creation. If this is you, we would love to hear from you.

The work of Tools with a Mission, (TWAM), supports African livelihoods, UK communities, and the fight against climate change. We provide tools to skill centres in Africa. These tools give the recipient the means to generate their own income, create their own business, and build a mindset of independence, not reliance.
