Trade Tools for Entrepreneurs in Haiti

by A Self-Help Assistance Program (ASAP)


This project will provide trade tools to 100 vocational school graduates in Haiti, empowering them to put their skills to work to earn a living and help rebuild their country. In the US, volunteers work together to refurbish tool donations - keeping tools out of landfills - and putting them into the hands of young entrepreneurs.

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.


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.
