Tools change lives - and countries too! Haiti is still being rebuilt after the devastating earthquake destroyed 90% of the schools in the country. Rebuilding takes skilled labor and tools. The tools provided by this project are still at work today. Through our project partnership with the Salesian Missions of Don Bosco, the tools we send to Haiti do directly into the hands of vocational school graduates.Young people with the skills to rebuild the country.
Because of your support for this project, graduates have the tools to hit the ground running; putting their newly acquired vocational skills to work to build a better life for themselves, their families, their community and to rebuild the country. As Emmanuel, a building graduate from the Don Bosco Technical School in Fort Libety explained proudly, "Because of my tools I was able to find work. It is impossible to find work without tools. In fact, I actually worked to rebuild the school my two children attend today."
Tool 'loan sharks' often prey on graduates searching for employment; charging exorbitant monthly fees to use tools that the graduates will never own. Giving to this project does so much more than provide tools. It gives people self-reliance, dignity and hope for the future.
