I found this over on Google+ and wanted to share. I make my CBGs at my kitchen table with basic tools. (The most advanced tool I use is a power hand drill.) I don't have a garage or a workshop. I have a small bin of tools and supplies, and that's it. But that's nothing compared to refugees at Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Malawi. An amazing and inspiring video.
