Have you ever wanted to bang a nail and didnt have a hammer? What did you do? Maybe you looked in the garden shed or popped down to the DIY.

Tools for Self Reliance is doing something about this. Today, hundreds of TFSR volunteers in Britain collect, refurbish, and ship tools and sewing machines to six countries in Africa.
