    Testimonials

    "Village donations build a confidence that goes both ways: the villagers know that my support will last for two years – and personally, I hope to stay in touch for as long as I live. As the donor, I know that the program will really make people in the village self-sufficient. When they learn to manage money and run a business, they can help themselves, even when my financial support ends." Ulla Zachrisson | Hand in Hand supporter
    "My decision to support Hand in Hand was inspired by its unremitting focus on creating businesses and jobs and the multiplier effect this has on the aspirations, the wellbeing, the future of families and of entire communities." Martin Wiwen-Nilsson | Hand in Hand supporter
