Life Changing Tools

Thank you for your previous support for ASAP’s Vocational Training Project in Zimbabwe. All funds previously received were used for the Vocational Training in Zimbabwe.  However, as previously mentioned, the current situation on the ground is very tenuous right now with presidential elections on the horizon.  It is and will become very difficult to operate and as a precaution, ASAP has retired this project and will re-focus on our vocational project in Nicaragua.

ASAP's new project, Tools for Self Help, will provide volunteer refurbished tool kits to young farmers and artisans in Nicaragua and other Central American countries. We are just now developing the project and looking for a small warehouse to get started.  A simple tool kit can make a life changing difference for someone who has learned the skills but cannot afford to buy the tools to actually implement them.  We expect to be shipping two containers a month after one year.  Please consider helping us get this project off the ground with a generous investment in the start-up.

Thanks,

Tom
