Empowering entrepreneurs worldwide with tools for success "My tools are precious to me. I didn't get to go to school as a child. But now with the income I'll make from carpentry I can give my two children the education I never had." These are the words of Mathias Sibanda. As a graduate of ASAP's Tinovaka Training Center in Zimbabwe, Mathias received a certificate and complete set of carpentry tools. It is impossible to imagine how life-changing owning your own tools can be in the developing world. Year in and year out, eager vocational school graduates, diploma in-hand, enthusiastically seek non-existent employment - a too often demoralizing and demotivating pursuit. To help promising youth succeed, ASAP's new Tools For Empowerment (TFE) project will provide quality tool kits to entrepreneurs around the world. Working in partnership with The Salesian Missions Don Bosco Training Centers, ASAP will empower deserving entrepreneurs who have just graduated, with quality tool kits - applying newly acquired skills to earn a living. These basic tool kits, will help to transform lives from perpetual poverty to productivity, as graduates become contributing members of their community. Donated tools, new and used, will be refurbished as needed and tool kits created for a myriad of crafts - bicycle repair, metalcraft,sewing, carpentry, building and blacksmithing, to name a few. Working together, with our corporate partners, donors and volunteers, ASAP looks forward to launching this new program in Haiti, and will empower entrepreneurs with the tools to make a living, improving life for families all over the world.
