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? 

How Hands On works

Our Hands On programme supports communities as they undertake a two or three-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.

Our next project: Hands On Karuna Battambang

Now we’re off to Cambodia. There, we’ll meet fantastic farmers, terrific teachers and inspirational young people – all working together to make their communities more secure in the face of the climate crisis.

In 2019, Cambodia produced nearly 10.9 million tonnes of rice. The Battambang region is sometimes referred to as the “rice bowl”.

The climate crisis is making it harder for famers to grow crops like they once did. But with support from local experts, communities are working hard to become even more resilient in the face of this crisis.

Look out for more updates coming soon.

Previous Hands On successes

We have seen incredible success in Magdalena Medio, Altiplano, Doutchi, and Kitui. Which is all thanks to generous supporters who got hands on, supporting these communities through monthly donations, messages of encouragement and friendship, and the motivation to keep going.

Hands on heart: our promise to you

1. Your Hands On donations will directly fund your chosen project

Every penny you donate will go into our Hands On Fund. Your chosen project will receive all the money it needs from the fund.

2. Your Hands On donations are flexible

If you are unable to continue supporting Hands On, you can change, pause, stop or restart your donations, just call us on 0303 303 3030.

3. When your project ends, you can get hands on somewhere else

After your chosen project is complete, we’ll introduce you to another project. And once again you’ll follow the work from start to completion.

4. You’ll always see the difference you are making

Over time the Hands On Fund will support many projects. But you’ll always be able to see how you are helping communities to build a secure and prosperous future.
