About Hand in Hand
Hand in Hand is an NGO (non-governmental organization) and their mission is to reduce poverty and child labour through sustainable job creation that raises family income. They do so through social and economic empowerment of some of the poorest and most marginalised people and focus particularly on women.
Raising family income contributes to greater food security, better education for children, better housing and increased access to medicines and healthcare. By focusing on strengthening women, their children and the entire family are benefitted and gain a better life.
Hand in Hand's work model is based on a help to self-help approach by equipping poor people with the knowledge and skills needed to gain better livelihoods in order to lift themselves out of poverty.
