How can I help?

Regular donations

Offering a helping hand financially on a regular basis enables the children to succeed in school by knowing they have their basic needs taken care of.  Choose from any of the following options:

    1. $10/month for the Essentials Education program to send a child to school. Your monthly contribution will go directly to the children in our school to help pay for uniforms, books and supplies.
    2. $25/month for Essentials Education Plus. Your monthly contribution covers the cost to send two children to school. A little extra is set aside to provide fresh fruits for everyone at the school.
    3. $50/month for the Children and Community Sponsorship program. 90% of your contributions will go to the children of Helping Hands. The remainder will be put into the ‘community pot’ where the funds are collectively used to buy food, books, school supplies and clothing for children in surrounding communities. We have partnerships with orphanages and local schools and deliver these items on a regular basis.
    4. Choose your own custom amount or make a one-time donation.* Every little bit helps.
