Alquity’s Transforming Lives Programme promotes enterprise and employability in developing economies. By providing the micro-credit and business training, Hand in Hand is helping entrepreneurs to lift themselves out of poverty, directly in alignment with Alquity’s objectives. Hand in Hand’s focus on business training and the creation of sustainable jobs is a particularly effective and commendable approach to development. Katharine Miller | CSR Programme Manager | Alquity
Instant Impact is the UK’s leading intern and graduate recruitment agency. Fitting, then, that we’ve partnered with Hand in Hand International, the country’s leading job creation NGO. For the next year, we’ll pay for the creation of one job abroad every time we fill a vacancy here at home, donating a minimum of £10,000. For hundreds of Hand in Hand members, the partnership will mean the difference between subsistence and success. For Instant Impact staff, it will mean the chance to transform a family’s fortunes – the best incentive possible. Rob Blythe | Co-Founder and Director | Instant Impact
