When Fabiola graduates from the Don Bosco Technical School in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, she will have the tools she needs to repair automobiles. This opportunity is made possible by ASAP’s Tools For Empowerment program.
Vulnerable youth are eager to find employment. But graduates must have tools to find a job or earn income with their skills. Most young people, like Fabiola, cannot afford to buy tools; even the low-quality tools available in Haiti are very expensive. Tool “Loan sharks” prey on the situation. Fabiola, and others like her, often pay exorbitant prices each month to use tools they will never own.
Fabiola no longer worries. Her automotive tool kit, which she used during her two-year training program, will be awarded to her upon graduation. This is made possible by Tools For Empowerment; A Project that recycles and refurbishes donated trade tools and equipment and donates them directly to vocational school graduates around the world.
