What kinds of tools best help us achieve self-reliance? Certainly education, information, resources and awareness can help. But what about actual real tools, like hammers and saws? Our guest is Sarah Ingleby.

Sarah Ingleby, Tools for Self-Reliance

Sarah Ingleby is the CEO of Tools for Self-Reliance, a UK-based charity founded in 1980. The organization believes that a world free from extreme poverty and hunger can be created by helping people to be more self-reliant. And they find that concept to be especially true in Africa..

Tools for Self Reliance gives people the skills and tools to get them out of poverty and into work, supplying them with a chance they never had before. Each year they ship tens of thousands of high-quality refurbished tools and sewing machines to partners in Tanzania, Uganda, Ghana, Zambia, Sierra Leone and Malawi, and pay for much-needed skills training.
