Tools for the World : A Look At 2020

2020 came with its challenges, felt throughout the entire globe. Tools for the World and our partner organization- Compassionate Resource Warehouse also felt the pandemic’s effects, with a greatly reduced number of hours that volunteers were able to prepare items for shipping, as well as additional challenges in clearing and distribution.
Despite these setbacks, we were still able to send out 42 pallets of tools to 12 countries!

Skill development centres in Jordan, Malawi, Uganda, Ghana, and Burundi, have begun teaching carpentry, plumbing, and mechanical skills, offering a brighter future for the upcoming generation.

Care facilities in Moldova, and in Ghana are now receiving much needed maintenance.

A youth center is being constructed in Mexico for at-risk and impoverished teens, as well as homes for single parent families.

Your tools will help revive Honduras in the wake of the hurricanes that ravaged the land in November, killing 94, and leaving 150,000 homeless.

It was a difficult year for many, but with your generosity, the right tools are put into the hands of eager workers, ready to build a more hopeful future!

Thank you for your support!

  1. I am seeking a broad description as to what constitutes “good old tools”.
    What tools? Power tools only? Hand tools? Please be specific about examples. Also, what sort of things do you not want.

    • Hi Ken,
      We’ll take just about anything! Hand tools, power tools, woodworking and metalworking tools and machinery, garden tools, construction tools and safety equipment, etc! If it’s in need of minor repairs, no problem. If it’s too broken to be useful, maybe it should be recycled instead. The only specific items we are currently asking you do not donate are vacuums/shop vacs. Other than that, if it’s useful here, it’s probably also useful overseas! In the event that an item is not worth sending to a developing country, it may be sold with the proceeds going to the program, though this is rare.
      Thanks for asking!
