We care for people in need

Helping people in need is our passion

It is our passion to help people in need, to give people a second chance in life and in the labour market. For example, we support various development projects worldwide through our Tools4Life foundation, such as Heartview for you foundation, food bank Leerdam and Agua Viva foundation that helped us develop and produce the R-Go Viva laptop bag. We also collaborate with social workshops for the assembly of our Steel laptop stands. Our felt protective bags are custom-made by i-Did, an exceptional social enterprise that makes products from recycled textiles. Finally, our Leerdam office is a clothing collection point for Stichting CRR (Christian Refugee Relief), so that refugees in southern Europe can be provided with clothing.



Tools4Life Foundation was founded on 1 October 2018 with the mission to give those in need and living in poverty the means to make a living for themselves. To do so, Tools4Life supports several projects, including:

  • Agua Viva Foundation
    Agua Viva is an addiction care institution dedicated to teaching former addicts a trade to provide for themselves.
  • A project in Indonesia
    This project helps women who are disowned or at risk within their own families with shelter and training. The aim is to teach these women to provide for themselves by, for example, making and selling products.
  • Christian Refugee Relief Foundation (CRR)
    Among other things, the Christian Refugee Relief Foundation (CRR) sends relief supplies to refugee camps in Southern Europe on a monthly basis. Besides financial support, Tools4Life has started a clothing collection point at Techniekweg 15 in Leerdam since the end of 2022.

Cooperation with

Agua Viva

To produce the R-Go Viva laptop bag, we cooperate with the Agua Viva foundation in Brazil. Agua Viva is a Christian organisation whose mission is to work for Brazilian fellow human beings under the motto ” people becoming human again”. People can get into trouble due to all kinds of circumstances and get stuck as a result. This can be through drug-alcohol abuse, debt, illness, divorce or psychological problems. Agua Viva offers help in the form of a rehabilitation centre.

Will you help?

By buying our laptop bag, you ensure that people in need are given the prospect of a new life. We donate about 20% of the production cost of the laptop bag to the Agua Viva foundation. This way, they can give even more people a new chance!

Collaboration with


For the assembly of products, we work together with Avres. Avres helps people find their place in society (again), for instance by finding suitable work. For example, our R-Go Steel laptop stands are assembled in Avres’ sheltered workshop. This saves us a lot of work and at the same time offers people distanced from the labour market work experience and new opportunities. That makes us very happy.

Collaboration with


We recently started working with i-Did. A social enterprise with a wonderful dual mission. They help clean up the so-called textile mountain by making new products from recycled felt from old textiles. They do this in their own i-Did Factory, where people who have never or for a long time not worked can gain employee skills under supervision. When we were looking for sustainable protective covers to safely carry our products, we came into contact with i-Did. As far as we’re concerned, things couldn’t be better: the visions of i-Did and R-Go match seamlessly. And the result of this collaboration is impressive: trendy, felt pouches, compact and sturdy, specially developed for our Twister mouse or Split keyboard. And so this order also offers people new opportunities!
