Another Container Ships

It is always exciting when a new container ships out to empower vocational graduates with the tools for success. Due to the Hurricane damage in Haiti, the Salesian Missions requested that we do not ship to them. With all the Hurricane relief going into Haiti, it would be too time consuming and costly to ship to them right now. So they decided to ship this one to their vocational school in The Dominican Republic instead. The DR school administration was real happy with the tools and equipment they received.

 

The future of the Tools For Empowerment project includes shipping to Latin America and The Caribbean. We are planning the expansion of this project from local to Regional in its scope. This will enable us to ship more containers to more places.

 

Please support our work to empower youth and provide them with the tools for success!

Deactivation of Malawi Project

We are deactivating the Malawi project and this will no longer be posted on GlobalGiving. This has proven necessary due to changes beyond our control. Sometimes circumstances change and a new direction must be considered in order to keep efforts towards our work relevant and efficient. The situation with our partner organization in Malawi has changed and we are now focusing on the Tools For Empowerment project serving The Caribbean and Latin America. The "Tools" project has been very successful and will be ramped-up next year.  The three donations totaling $100 will be used in that project instead. Your understanding is appreciated.

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.
