Change A Life

Thanks to your support we are getting closer to our first tool kit shipment.  So far we have $3,141 donated and once we have reached $10,000 we will secure a small workspace to collect and sort tool kits.  At that time we will then begin to recruit volunteers to help prepare the kits for shipment. Our current plan is to work through training centers in Nicaragua and provide tool kits as requested for their needy graduates.

Many young people have managed to acquire skills from local training centers but have no way of using those skills because they cannot afford to buy tools.  We at ASAP believe providing a simple but quality tool kit will change the lives of an entire family..  Usually one person is the provider for a family. That tool kit enables a son or daughter to generate income using those skills.  The family will then have money for food, clothing and schooling for the youngsters.
