TWAM is a Christian charity that collects unwanted usable tools, refurbishes them, sorts them into trade tool kits and sends them to the developing world for livelihood creation.  They send around 16 containers filled with a total of around 225 tonnes of tools every year.  These tools range from sewing machines and knitting machines to carpentry tools and mechanics tools.

Groups such as Rotary, U3A, and WI ask for talks about TWAM.  They also work with many Churches who ask them to speak at Church Services and Midweek meetings (they will only ask a Christian comfortable with this setting to speak at Churches). They will provide talks and presentations that you can use, and for their busiest Community Ambassadors, they can also provide projectors and screens.

TWAM ask that their ambassadors try and arrange their own meetings as well as waiting for those referred by them. An email or phone call to a local group will often lead to an invitation. 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 needed to operate, and gain new volunteers. This is a great difference to make.

You’ll join our Speaker Network with lots of support, resources, ideas and opportunities for training. You receive a Speaker Pack, TWAM polo-shirt and fleece, and be invited to Volunteer Days and Open Days. T

TWAM provide an induction to the role which may be either over the phone, electronically or in person and a volunteer handbook on starting. You will have a named contact within TWAM for any questions or problems, and further training can be provided as required.

Skills

This is a great role for a confident speaker who wants to share the passion to transform lives through skills training and tools.

You’ll need access to transport, and if you use your own car, legally we will also need to check you have adequate motor insurance and your car has an MOT.
