    Testimonials

    "Your work is amazing and incredibly impactful. I wish all our partners were as stellar as Hand in Hand India."
    Matt Damon | Co-founder | water.org
    “Hand in Hand transforms individual's lives, children's futures and local communities at large.
    A truly outstanding organization. Now this exciting journey starts in Tanzania.”
    Ane M.M. Uggla
    "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
    If I was given 10 million Swedish Crowns and had to to spend them straight away, (...) I would donate 7 million to Hand in Hand, provided they were managed by Percy Barnevik" Hans Dalborg | Honorary CEO | Nordea Bank
    "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
