We are very glad to partner with Walkabout Foundation as our goal is similar to theirs.

By The Hand is committed to serving children from the most under-resourced, dangerous neighborhoods. We work closely with school principals to identify those who are most likely to drop out—those who are failing and in critical need of intervention. Typically, they are not meeting reading standards and they often have significant hardships that require special attention to overcome. It is our vision to help each one of these children experience abundant and everlasting life.
