HISTORY AND OBJECTIVE

TOOLS FOR TRAINING (formally known as
Tools for Freedom) was established in 1960
by a group of New England businessmen.
The program's objective then, as today, is to
channel new and used machinery, tools and
equipment, donated by U.S. industry, to
qualified vocational schools in developing
countries for the training of young techni-
cians. In 1966, the program merged with the
Pan American Development Foundation
(PADF) to concentrate its efforts in Latin
America and the Caribbean.

To date, the TOOLS FOR TRAINING (TFT)
program has received the strong support of
U.S. industry and has been able to generate
over 13 million dollars in equipment contribu-
tions, (metal-working machinery, electrical
and electronic components, welding equip-
ment, scientific apparatus, hand tools, etc.)
that have been placed in over 200 technical
vocational schools with a total enrollment of
22,000 students in 14 Latin American and
Caribbean countries.
