Help Haitians Rebuild After Hurricane

Volunteers
Volunteers

Thank you for your previous support. Now here is a great chance for you to help with the Hurricane Matthew recovery in Haiti. Do something tangible! They need tools for carpentry, masonry, electrical, plumbing metalwork, and auto mechanics. And don’t worry; we know where the tools go! ‘Tools For Empowerment’ (TFE) volunteers refurbish and pack the donated tools from our community and send them directly to Salesian Missions Vocational Schools in Haiti.

With all the concerns about corruption within Haiti as well as with some of the big NGOs, people are asking, “I want to help but where does my donation really go”? We know our program works and gets the badly needed tools to exactly the right people. So your donation goes a long way to help TFE continue to change lives in a practical way! And the best thing is these trade tools will give Haitians the ability to rebuild the hurricane damage themselves. Isn’t that what sustainable development is about?

Please donate generously and feel good that your donation is truly changing lives. Thank you.

It's Springtime in Malawi

The President's state of emergency in southern Malawi remains as food prices continue to rise daily and the value of the Malawi Kwacha drops daily. Poor farming families are forced to cope by eating fewer meals.

It's Spring in Malawi with the temperature up, the rains have stopped and preparation for planting has begun but the eventual harvest is always unsure.  ASAP's Aquaponics project here will make a huge diffrence in the nutrition status of poor families.  Children will have access to nutritious fish and vegetables all year, improving their nutrition come drought or floods.

You can help ASAP make a positive change in the lives of poor farming families. Please donate generously.

Families Can Overcome The Drought

The President has declared a state of emergency in southern Malawi. Hunger prevails. Food prices rise daily. The Malawi Kwacha has lost half its’ value. UNICEF reports a 100% increase in child malnutrition since December. Poor farming families are forced to cope by eating fewer meals.

 In Chiradzulu district, a vegetable vendor and mother of five, Beauty is up at three a.m. to prepare for the market. The day before, she bought tomatoes and okra from village farmers and packed them in her dengu (woven basket) and now makes the long trip to the market. With her earnings, she hopes to buy some white maize meal. It iscooked into a thick porridge called nsima, Malawi’s staple food. “We are living day to day, eating what we can manage to source for that day,” she will tell you.

You can help families like Beauty’s when you support this project. Beauty’s children will have access to nutritious fish and vegetables all year. Through this home Aquaponics project you will help improve their nutrition throughout the year – come drought or floods. Please help ASAP make a positive change in the lives of poor farming families.
