About Hand in Hand International
Where others see poverty Hand in Hand sees grassroots entrepreneurs, full of energy and potential. We help channel their skills and ideas into jobs. They find a way out of poverty.
Since 2003, across a network stretching from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, Hand in Hand has helped create or improve some 4 million jobs 90 percent of them for women. We focus on women because they face unique barriers to starting an enterprise and generating an income. At the same time, for every dollar they earn, they spend 90 cents on their families and communities. We work in four key stages. First we create community groups, made up mainly of women, who support each other, save together and learn together. Then we train them in enterprise and vocational skills, to help them start or develop small businesses that make use of their skills and potential. Next we provide access to microloans that are always paid back thanks to support from the group. Finally we help scale up members' businesses and take them to bigger markets, which in turn benefits their families and communities.
