The charitable work of Tools with a Mission is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world for livelihood creation. We send around 20 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year. To do this we rely on a national volunteer workforce and welcome people of all ages and abilities and of any faith and no faith. We do this because we want to support local people supporting their own communities through sustainable livelihood creating projects. We believe there is dignity through work and the ability to provide for yourself and your family. We believe entire communities can be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment.
The role of the TWAM speaker is to talk to groups in your local community leaving them with the challenge to support TWAM through tool collections, financial provision or by volunteering.
Typical tasks may include Taking calls and emails from members of the public and arranging talk engagements Preparing a presentation and ensuring you have sufficient supplies of all literature you may need Carrying out the talk leaving groups with the challenge to support TWAM Passing on any donations made by the group to Head Office for thank you letters to be prepared if tools have been provided, arrange for the local collector or TWAM van to pick up from you or follow up in a few weeks and arrange pick up if a collection is being made.
You need to have a friendly and welcoming personality as you will be the face of TWAM to members of the Public. You need to be willing to travel a little as at present our speaker coverage does not cover all areas of the UK. You need to be happy to be out front and to enjoy public speaking being able to deliver a talk or a sermon with passion. Ideally, you will be familiar with Powerpoint and modern media methods as these will be expected by many groups.
