A few months ago, I had a volunteering work from the help groups that I am associated in my neighborhood with. First of all, I do not really find the time to make it to all the meetings but I have the immense aptitude to be able to give back something at least to the community in the form of collaboration or expertise or even knowledge sharing.
The group I work with is not really big on helping financially but it believes that when a person is helped with the know-how it becomes easier to help him and to make sure that his dignity is intact.
I so agree with this philosophy. Give a man a fish and he will eat it today; teach him to fish and he will never go hungry ever!
So, this project was for helping the rural carpenters to help them to be able to withstand the competition that mechanized workshops were giving them.
We partnered with the leading website called Sawinery as our knowledge partner and then there was absolutely no looking back.
They are a goldmine for everything that you want to know about the advanced tools in carpentry.
The problems that the rural carpenters faced were
- Lack of power;
- Lack of technologically-advanced tools;
- Lack of skill and
- Ignorance of computer knowledge.
We set all of this right by helping them know what all the options they had for themselves. We initially helped them to get low-interest loans to be able to have the most basic infrastructure in their workshops and then we got them commissioned work from others.
Once they began seeing money, they began buying more advanced tools to increase their skill repertoire. I have seen them blooming right in front of my eyes and I cannot tell you how proud I am to be associated with them.
