Saturday 2 December 2006: Tools for Self Reliance.
Today we made our annual family outing to the Garvald Centre's Christmas Fair where you can buy all sorts of handmade gifts. They also sell refurbished hand tools to raise money so they can continue to support the Tools for Self Reliance project. The tool workshop collects old hand tools and sewing machines, which they refurbish and service, there then shipped out to crafts people in Africa, who use the tools to start there own small business.
The motto for the project 'TFSR Forges Link's 'says it all. A life ehancing day and the offical start to a real Chrisrtmas.
