Visit a village

Our Village Uplift Programme attacks poverty on a community-wide scale, bringing Hand in Hand’s job creation model to hundreds of grassroots entrepreneurs at once. The programme launched in Kenya in early-2014 before expanding to Afghanistan three years later.

Many of our donors find the journey of the village they support and its residents is a very personal experience.

“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 programme 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 Village supporter
