Apply for tools

To apply for support, complete the online application form

To be eligible for TWAM assistance, you have to be registered with the Zambian Government as a Society under the Societies Rules (Section 7(2) of Societies Act Cap 119). Please have a scanned copy (PDF or JPEG) ready to upload before you apply online. Please make sure your registration certificate is not out of date. Alternatively, a Certificate from the Ministry of Commerce under the Registrar of Companies and Business Units falling under the category of: Companies Limited by Guarantee, which are Not for Profit Non-Governmental Organisation (NGOs). For state-run schools, as these are not issued with a Registration Certificate, please supply me with your EMIS numbers and exam centre codes to certify your school.

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 the delivery of the tools you need.

What you need to know

  1. We will let you know that we have received your application

  2. You will then receive a phonecall from our Zambia team to assess your application

  3. Following this we will tell you whether or not your application is successful

  4. We will then tell you when your tools will arrive

  5. After you have had your tools for one year, we will carry out an assessment to make sure you are using your tools as you agreed in your application.

Do you need books?

We no longer supply books, but if you would like to apply for books, please visit the charity Books2Africa which may be able to help you. Click here to find out more
