Private donors are vital to the success of our programmes. Our donors trust us to deliver high impact initiatives that transform whole communities. In return for their generous support, we provide private donors with regular updates on how their donation is changing lives.

Changing lives at scale

Our focus is alleviating poverty through job creation. Since 2003 we have been helping women beat the odds and succeed as entrepreneurs in some of the world’s toughest places.

By 2026, Hand in Hand aims to create 7 million jobs that lift women and their families out of poverty. We’d love to talk to you about your philanthropic goals and how we can help you to achieve them.

Giving as a family

Many of our donors choose to involve their families in their philanthropic work. Giving as a family can help maximize your charitable impact, at the same time as helping to instill philanthropic values in the next generation.

"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
