HANDS AROUND THE WORLD (HATW) is a charity which seeks to help vulnerable children around the world, encouraging enthusiastic and well-prepared short-term volunteers to offer practical help, skill-sharing, support and friendship.
'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.'
'GIVING A HAND, NOT A HANDOUT'
The charity responds to specific needs in two ways:
• It sends groups of volunteers on projects lasting about a month to places of need such as hospitals, schools and community centres.
•It also sends individual skilled volunteers to similar places of need, particularly in a training role, hopefully followed by further input a short time later.
The projects aim to show love in action; to help people work side by side; to relieve suffering; to achieve something lasting and worthwhile; to broaden the experience of the volunteers and to develop lasting links between communities.
As per agreement for other net participants we can give an expert opinion and procure expert information in the field of our work. Other supporting possibilities: Networking / help from experience working in Sub-Saharan Africa.
