CWS Tools

Empowering families. Strengthening communities.

Contributions to CWS Tools mean Church World Service will be ready to help people around the world gain the resources and develop the skills necessary to sustain themselves and their families and to build viable communities.

Ahmad Syarif, a member of the Tolong Menolong Fishers Group in the Nias Island village of Olora, Indonesia, today fishes with one of several boats provided with the help of Church World Service. From fishing cooperatives in Nias to farming co-ops and training for 12 agricultural communities in northwest Haiti, CWS reaches out to those who have nothing to “fall back on,” equipping them not only with solutions, but with resilience.
