About Tools with a Misson
We collect donated tools from across the UK, refurbish them, pack them into trade kits, and send them to African skills centres for livelihood creation. We have a team of over 400 volunteers nationwide and 6 members of staff helping us every step of the way. We want to send 1 million tools to Africa every year, and we need your help to do this. Join TWAM's Paul Daley on Zoom to find out more about what roles are available and how you can be an essential part of our mission.
The main role of a Volunteer speaker is to speak publicly on behalf of TWAM and be our public face in their locality. This will mean receiving invitations from a variety of groups wanting a volunteer speaker to talk about TWAM. Talks can be from 10 minutes to 40 minutes long and may include a Q&A session. Please don’t worry as we will not ask you to speak at a meeting you are not confident to attend
What will you be doing?
Groups such as Rotary, U3A, and WI ask for talks about TWAM. We also work with many Churches who ask us to speak at Church Services and Mid-week meetings (we will only ask a Christian comfortable with this setting to speak at Churches). We will provide talks and presentations that you can use, and for our busiest volunteer speakers, we can also provide projectors and screens. We ask our speakers to try and get their own meetings as well as waiting for those referred by us. An email or phone call to a local group will often lead to an invitation.
What difference will you make?
This is an incredibly rewarding role as you get to meet
lots of people and excite and enthuse them with the
work of TWAM. Your enthusiasm will also help TWAM
raise vital funds, gain the tools we need to operate, and
gain new volunteers. This is a great difference to make!
You need to be able to speak eloquently, clearly and passionately about our work. You need to be able to engage with people and inspire them to support TWAM.
This is a great role for a confident speaker who wants to share our passion to transform lives through skills training and tools. You’ll need access to transport, and if you use your car, legally we will also need to check you have adequate motor insurance and your car has an MOT.
