A Self-help Assistance Program – ASAP - was created in 1992 to cultivate self-reliance. ASAP provides access to education, skills training and knowledge that endure for a lifetime.
ASAP works to empower entrepreneurs with the tools for success. In partnership with The Salesian Missions Don Bosco Training Centers, ASAP collects new and used donated tools, which are refurbished as needed and made into specific kits for various artisans such as auto mechanics, carpentry, bricklaying, building, plumbing, electrical and building. Access to an ASAP's Tools For Empowerment kit can mean the difference between perpetual poverty and productivity, as graduates become active members of their community.
In Zimbabwe and Malawi ASAP established sustainable local organizations that implement Savings Group micro-finance projects; helping thousands of families improve their household income each year. In the US, ASAP works to raise awareness of the truly transformational power of Savings Groups, helping others to seed businesses, raise capital and create self-reliance.
