HANDS AROUND THE WORLD helps needy children around the world, sending volunteers to offer practical help, skill-sharing and friendship at our partner centres.
HATW works currently in Africa and India and strives for happy, healthy children who are safe, cared for, listened to, well fed, clothed, housed and in school.
More than 2000 children benefit every day, many are orphans and coping with disabilities.
Happily, the lives of many others too have been transformed through our involvement over the last 18 years.
There are at least 25 million orphaned children in Africa today. Most are victims of HIV / AIDS.

Please can you help us? We need more supporters because TOGETHER WE CAN AND DO REALLY MAKE A LASTING DIFFERENCE in the lives of these children!
Could you join hands with us? It could be the most fulfilling, challenging, emotional, worthwhile, memorable experience of your life.
Overseas volunteers needed - 3 weeks to 3 months!

'Our hands around the world may get grubby and blistered, they may need to hold a sick child or comfort a grieving parent, they may sometimes be asked simply to hold the hand of another, but there is always more to these hands than practical help alone.'
