Summary

Empower a young vocational school graduate in Haiti with the tools to succeed. In the poorest country in the world, Tools For Empowerment provides trade tool kits, so 100 graduates, age 18-24, will put skills to work to earn a living and help rebuild their country.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are few jobs in Haiti. Even with vocational skills, employees are required to have their own tools to get a job. But buying tools is out of reach for the majority of students, even the poor quality tools that are available in Haiti. Tools For Empowerment provides 100 vocational graduates in Haiti with good quality, durable tools.

How will this project solve this problem?

Tools will empower graduates with the tools to practice their craft, put their newly acquired skills to work to earn a living and help rebuild their country.

Potential Long Term Impact

Breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty, one graduate at a time. Successful entrepreneurs not only meet their family's needs, but will create jobs in their communities. This will improve the economy, as these proficient and experienced crcraftsman provide much needed goods and services.
