HANDS AROUND THE WORLD

HANDS AROUND THE WORLD aims to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of vulnerable children, mostly in Africa, working alongside local inspirational people, helping them realise their dreams

Founded 1994

  • Mission statement

    HANDS AROUND THE WORLD helps vulnerable children around the world, encouraging enthusiastic and well-prepared volunteers to offer practical help, skill-sharing, support and friendship.

    "GIVING A HAND, NOT A HANDOUT"

    Our hands around the world may get grubby and blistered, they may need to hold a sick child or comfort a grieving parent, they may sometimes be asked simply to hold the hand of another, but there is always more to these hands than practical help alone.

    We want our volunteers to make a difference, both whilst away and when they return! We challenge them to use their experience positively, continue support, and keep in touch.

  • Aims

    HANDS AROUND THE WORLD aims to:

    • To help vulnerable and seriously disadvantaged children, many of them orphans of AIDS, to a better life through encouraging support, schooling and loving care.
