Quality refurbished tools for gardening, green wood-work, working in the woods, and many crafts? TOOLS FOR SELF RELIANCE. Groups collect old and unwanted hand tools from all over the UK. Volunteers clean, repair and sharpen them, and send tool kits to grass roots community groups in several African countries. Is a totally independent charity based in Crickhowell in South Wales, and we collect tools from across Wales. We sell a large number of tools that are not requested by our overseas partners. These are fully refurbished, sharpened and fitted with new handles where necessary. They are individual in character and of much better quality than modern tools. These tools include many billhooks, axes and slashers which we don? T send overseas because the blacksmiths can make them. We are trying to support Tanzanian tool makers not put them out of business. This is our main source of income and we sell them direct from our workshop in Crickhowell. Or at events such as the Small-holders Fair in Builth Wells or the Green Man Festival. Classic Range of Tools. Is available at our workshop and online at. These are tools that are a little bit special, by makers such as Gilpin, Brades, Whitehouse etc. Stock is constantly changing. Helps to fund our workshop in Mwanza, providing tools to artisans in Tanzania. Go towards our Mwanza workshop which provides tools and training to artisan groups within Lake Zone. The blacksmiths groups are taught new skills on the forge, better hardening and finishing techniques, and helped with marketing their products. Carpentry groups are also given training in maintaining their tools and developing new products. This is a joint project between the Small Industries Development Organisation, and TFSR Cymru. Recycling tools is one of our answers to the waste economy. We live in an energy-guzzling, consumer society, too ready to throw things away. In Africa, by contrast people waste very little. But what about the skills and energy of ordinary people? In an African village, development is held back for the want of a few tools; this is a waste of human potential.
