Every £63 raised
creates one job
Independent figures show that every £63 we raise creates one job. Since 2003 we’ve created 2.15 million jobs worldwide and helped to transform the lives of more than 4.5 million children. As Deutsche Bank Charity of the year, we estimate we’ll be able to create 27,000 jobs and change the lives of 62,300 children. And all you need to do is vote.
A message from John Kay, Financial Times
"I support Hand in Hand because I believe the best way in which we can aid poor countries is by helping them to develop the business skills which will not only bring greater prosperity to the present generation and their children but establish a springboard for future growth. I am impressed that Hand in Hand does not only provide finance to people with entrepreneurial skills but training which gives them the knowledge and confidence to develop successful businesses. And these programmes are not simply parachuted in from outside but embedded in local communities so that their impact will continue into the future, and develop and grow. Hand in Hand tackles the roots of poverty rather than poverty itself, and that is the only route to a world free of poverty."
