- "Lift up and stretch out your hands, not to heaven but to the poor; for if you stretch out your hands to the poor, you have reached the summit of heaven". - St. John Chrysostom
Hands of Humanity is a 501(c)3 U.S. Federal Nonprofit Corporation, EIN# 26-2601219.
We are a international humanitarian organization focusing on developing participatory, sustainable projects in rural areas of the developing world. The projects involve community development in the areas of efficient cooking methods, clean water, sanitation, fighting deforestation, education and economic relief.
This includes teaching existing, proven methods of improving the quality of life to rural people so that they may best help themselves. Hands Of Humanity seeks to empower rural communities to fulfill basic necessities that are fundamental to human dignity. It is our determination that the most cost-effective way to accomplish these goals is through education, example and support. We have learned that given the proper education and tools to work with, people will find a way to help themselves for the long term. This is far better than giving temporary assistance which benefits them only in the short term. Instead of trying to re-invent the wheel, HOH is looking to efficiently implement projects which are already in the works.
We encourage visitors to connect through Hands Of Humanity with people of our destination countries in meaningful "one on one" interaction. We encourage people to travel and work with us on our projects. The hope is that exposure to the developing world will enlighten them to the world outside their own and inspire them to continue humanitarian service in their lives.
