  • Who We Are

    We Global Hands London, GHL, seek to set and maintain the vision, mission and values of Global Hands.

    In June 2014, we participated in the Global Hands Gambia Development School in The Gambia, West Africa whereby we visited various towns and villages and took part in international development projects. This unforgettable experience was truly inspiring for us all which is why we decided to set up our own chapter and work in union with Global Hands.

    On the 16th August 2014, Global Hands London was formed.

    Our Mission

    GHL aims to conduct various projects to help and support individuals, families and communities around the world. However, our main focus is to #inspire the minds of young people, give them the #support they need to increase their potential and #educate them towards having a brighter future.

    We believe that young individuals should be provided with the opportunity to succeed and if you educate the youth, you educate the next generation.

    Education has the power to transform a child’s future. It gives them a chance to gain valuable knowledge and skills and to improve their lives. We GHL believe that developing life skills is all part of the education process and we are dedicated to inspiring the next generation of future leaders. In 2015, GHL seeks to launch our young entrepreneurs’ project, GHL Apprentice, which aims to give children an insight into business and enable them to recognise and develop important life skills.

    Workshops will focus on:
    Entrepreneurship
    Team building
    Creative thinking
    Public Speaking
    Numeracy
    Personal discipline
    Leadership


    Impact on children:
    To give children an insight into business
    To promote creative thinking
    To develop confidence

    To increase their ability to work as a team
    To improve their mathematical skills
    To develop their presentation skills


    GHL believe that developing life skills is a significant aspect of the overall education process. Our project seeks to raise the attainment of children and help them develop skills and qualities that are key to their personal development and are transferable in all aspects of life, now and in their future careers. We want young children to recognise their talents, be inspired to believe in themselves and to not only dream but to dream big!

    Homeless Project

    The GHL homeless project seeks to create survival kits for homeless individuals and donate these kits to those in need. Each survival kit will have basic items including: a blanket, toothbrush, toothpaste, food and water. As well as providing homeless individuals with our survival kits, we will also provide them with advice and information regarding local soup kitchens, homeless shelters and organisations that provide support for homeless people.

    Supporting Other Causes

    Since forming Global Hands London, we have focused on setting up a strong foundation and have engaged in a number of activities. This includes raising awareness, campaigning and volunteering abroad:
