To apply for support complete the online application form

To be eligible for TWAM assistance, you have to be registered with the Ugandan Government as a Not for Profit Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO).  We also accept applications from schools, churches, faith based and community groups.  We do not accept applications from businesses or individuals.  You must provide an official certificate or other proof of your charitable status. 


If you need help to complete the application please contact your nearest team member.  Help and support is always offered free of charge. 

We do ask that you contribute towards the cost of preparing your tools, so please think about this when applying.

We do not charge for specific tools or tool kits, but we do ask that you contribute a small amount towards the UK cost of collecting, refurbishing and packing the tools we send to Africa.

The Online Application form above will show you the cost of the tools you are applying for.  Before completing your application please think about the cost and whether you can afford it.  If you cannot, please reduce the number of tools you are applying for at this time to a cost you can afford.  You can apply again another time for more tools.  By applying for less tools rather than waiting to raise a larger amount you will not have to wait so long for delivery of the tools you need.
