Who Are We?
Hands At Work in Africa is a Christian non-profit organization working in vulnerable communities across sub-Saharan Africa where HIV/AIDS, poverty and numbers of orphans are highest and support structures are very low. We help the local church in those communities to effectively care for the orphaned and vulnerable. Our ministry is to all those in need, regardless of race, class or religion.
Where We Serve
Across Africa: DRC, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe
What We Do
We identify local Christian leaders within vulnerable communities who are already demonstrating a passion to serve the poor and broken in their community and to fulfill the biblical mandate to care for the orphaned and vulnerable. We support those leaders in developing a locally-owned organization in their community and begin a long-term relationship of service and partnership, where we continually work to increase the community’s capacity to provide care in an effective and holistic manner.
