Testimonials

"As an organization giving the most marginalized in society an opportunity to start a small business and raise their income, Hand in Hand is a natural partner for the Johnson & Johnson Corporate Citizenship Trust. We have supported Hand in Hand since 2011, funding one of their programs in Afghanistan and more recently in Kenya and have been impressed with the results." Frank Welvaert | Managing Director | The Johnson & Johnson Corporate Citizenship Trust
"I support Hand in Hand because the combination of providing microfinance, developing business skills and empowering women focuses on three key elements in stimulating the development process." John Kay | Visiting Professor of Economics | London School of Economics
"The Acacia Conservation Fund is an investment partnership that seeks to earn above market returns for its investors through the long term ownership of publicly traded equities. The Fund supports organizations with clearly articulated goals, strategies, and plans that produce demonstrable results on the ground. We are pleased to partner with Hand in Hand International – our funding is tangible evidence of our strong belief in your work and we look forward to working together for many years in the future." Gregory Alexander | Acacia Conservation Fund
"The Postcode Lottery supports organizations and programs which make a sustainable difference to people’s lives. The Hand in Hand business creation model has a proven track record of enabling some of the poorest and most marginalized in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa to set up businesses and lift their families out of poverty." Marieke van Schaik | Managing Director | Dutch Postcode Lottery
