Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Increase cross-cultural understanding and self-reliance.

1. Establish the new Tools For Empowerment project in Peachtree City GA, to recycle, refurbish and redistribute tools to needy entrepreneurs. In partnership with The Salesian Mission's of Don Bosco, tools kits will be sent to various countries in Latin America and The Caribbean to help vocational school graduates use their newly acquired skills. Village Savings & Lending training will be included in this project.

2. Secure funding and scale up the Improving Math Education in Primary School project in Zimbabwe and include linkages to US classrooms. Include Village Savings & Lending training in this project.

3. Continue to build the capacity of the (now) independent ASAP organizations operating in Zimbabwe and Malawi.

4. Increase funding through grants, corporations and individuals.

5. Scale up ASAP's "Circle Our World With Love" annual campaign to address childhood obesity in the US while securing funding for the Tools For Empowerment Project.

Operating since 1992, ASAP has vast experience in fund raising, grant writing and grant administration, project development, project implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Specific project expertise (1) integrating community development projects with Village Savings & Lending micro-finance projects (2) working to improve education through teacher training. (3) community based construction to build schools and teacher housing . (4) Business and vocational skills training

As an organization working to cultivate self-reliance, ASAP operate a social enterprise to cover operating costs when possible. in Zimbabwe ASAP's carpentry-with-production-training-center generated enough income to cover operating expenses for eight years, In the US, ASAP operated a private label coffee roasting social enterprise, which closed in 2008. Once the Tools For Empowerment project is fully functionally, ASAP's "Tools for Growth" project will generate income.

ASAP is currently fund raising for the Tools For Empowerment Project and working with ASAP Zimbabwe to develop a new five-year proposal to Improve Math Education in Primary School.

Capacity building of the programs ASAP established in Zimbabwe and Malawi is ongoing.

ASAP's 2nd annual "Circle Our World With Love" campaign is ready to launch July 1st and will run through September 30th.
