The Rescued Tools Foundation (Stichting Gered Gereedschap) collects and refurbishes discarded tools and small items of equipment in the Netherlands for the benefit of recipients in Sub-Saharan Africa. Our focus countries are: Uganda, Tanzania, Ghana and Malawi.
The Foundation favors projects that offer opportunities for women, marginalized groups, co-operatives, and ecological awareness and environmental protection.
We only supports projects in which the target group itself takes the initiative and remains active in the preparation, decision-making and implementation of the project.
We offer free transport of the materials to the nearest international port if the support consists of tools, machines or workshops.
For landlocked countries overland transport to a capital can be arranged as well.
Costs of customs clearance and transport to the final destination are the responsibility of the applicant organisation.
