Hands With Hands is an association of international and Nepalese friends who work on a voluntary basis on the shared vision of solidarity. They support individuals and organizations, and initiate and fund projects that promote empowerment and are based on humanitarian values. Be it support for children, the allocation of micro-credits or the promotion of renewable energy: Hands With Hands is committed to lasting, sustainable support and helping people help themselves. Their mission statement is “supply the net and not the fish”.
Moving Child has been covering the tuition for four children since 2011. After the earthquake in 2015, which is considered the deadliest disaster in the history of Nepal, Moving Child has subsidized the reconstruction of one children’s home near Kathmandu. Furthermore, Moving Child supports the earthquake-proof construction of a second children’s home in Pokhara. An adjacent guesthouse will also be constructed that will allow visitors and previous residents to come back and visit the group. Lastly, Moving Child finances the purchase of land in order to support organic farming for the self-sufficiency of the children.
