Tools for Self Reliance supports rural artisans and craftworkers with tools and training so they can improve their businesses.

Volunteer tool refurbishers are required to clean donated hand tools by undertaking simple metalworking tasks. e.g. removing any rust.

Disabled volunteers are particularly welcome.
