Summary

Over 3000 children daily are being helped out of poverty through the schools, homes & care that Hands Around the World's partner projects in Kenya, Zambia, Benin, Rwanda & India provide. We are in the process of creating an emergency strategy to combat the urgent issues facing our projects as a result of Covid-19. This will allow HATW to continue to make a long-lasting difference in the young lives of those we support, whilst maximising the impact of available funding and minimising overheads.

Challenge

The Covid-19 pandemic presents an unprecedented challenge to the work of HATW's partner projects in Africa & India. Rising food costs, school closures and a continuing lack of information regarding the scale of the pandemic, are all having a significant impact on already vulnerable communities. Hunger has intensified due to a loss of income at home and/or the loss of a meal at school. Vital pastoral care is also a challenge during temporary closures of schools/centres. Our help is needed!

Solution

Your donation will enable HATW to help our partners overseas to continue to offer care, education, protection and food to the 3000+ children they support. Protection includes: supplies of masks, soap, sanitiser, cleaning equipment & isolation room beds. The provision of food includes school lunches, small-scale food distribution & some farming initiatives. Project needs differ hugely and we are in close contact with all our project managers to ensure that funds are being directed as most needed.

Long-Term Impact

HATW is committed to working 'deeper rather than wider' meaning that over the 26 years of being established we have developed close and committed in-country partnerships to ensure the communities we work with can access key life provisions; and that the children and young people are well supported to maximise the opportunities available to them through care, nurturing & education. Long-term planning with all projects to ensure eventual self-sustainability is also key to our work & support.
