Raissa Verpalen, Community Manager at Draper Tools, along with some colleagues, visited our workshop recently to present the cheque, and commented: “We are so proud to support Tools for Self Reliance and the incredible work they do. As a business, we’re passionate about both tools and empowering people to work with them for a better future. It’s been an honour to get to know staff and volunteers at the charity and be part of their efforts to relieve poverty and create sustainable changes in Africa.”
We are absolutely overwhelmed by the generous support of Draper Tools, and thrilled to be their charity partner. We are looking forward to working with them, and sharing how their support is making a difference to our training projects.
