Hands On

Would you like the chance to support the men and women of one particular community? To stand with them as they undertake a project that will help transform their lives and their fortunes? Our new Hands On project in Altiplano, Bolivia is in need of your help.

Get Hands On today & support a community with their ambitious two-year project

We’re launching a project in Bolivia and are halfway through our second project in Doutchi, Niger. Our first project, in Kitui, Kenya has just completed. The changes the community in Kitui have made are amazing, and it’s all thanks to generous souls who are getting hands on, supporting them with monthly donations, messages of encouragement and friendship, and the motivation to keep going.

Our newest project, helping people grow food in the harsh Altiplano region of Bolivia, is in need of donors. The community are keen to get hands on training in new farming skills, bringing irrigation to their dry fields, and constructing greenhouses to grow crops.

How Hands On works

Our Hands On programme supports communities as they undertake a two year project, and lets you follow their progress. Your donations directly fund the work, and you'll receive regular updates on how things are progressing. Because they will directly fund the work, your regular gifts are essential to make these projects a success.

What next?

As soon as you get hands on you’ll receive a simple welcome folder with information about the people and the project.

Project one: Kitui, Kenya

Our Kitui project has completed. Thanks to regular donations from generous supporters the people of Kitui in Kenya have achieved so much. See the inspiring story of the Kitui project

Introducing Hands On Altiplano

Our third project is in the high Altiplano region of Bolivia. The climate here is harsh, and the people can lose entire harvests to a single, catastrophic, storm. The Hands On plan will help them irrigate their dry fields, train them in new farming techniques, and build protective greenhouses to grow a variety of crops.
