Hands Across the Water initially supported 32 kids who had lost their parents and were living in a tent at Baan Tharn Namchai in Phang-Nga, a town on Thailand's northern Andaman coast. The kids were left without food, shelter or support. Hands, along with a number of equally committed supporters pooled their resources to build the first orphanage at Baan Tharn Namchai. Today, Baan Tharn Namchai is home to over 100 children and Hands now supports over 250 at-risk children across seven homes throughout Thailand. Hands has a policy of 100% of all donations going to the children and their communities.
Each of GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners is required to send quarterly donor reports detailing the impact of their work.
