Volunteers changing the world one community at a time.

Help for today brings

hope for tomorrow

'Together we can do so much'- Helen Keller

Hearts and Hands Community Development was set up to assist impoverished communities raise themselves out of abject poverty and neglect to become a community where safety and well-being of every person is paramount.

A community where they no longer rely on handouts, scavenging or begging to exist. To build the community to become self-reliant and have self-respect and pride in their own achievements.

The community achieves this with support, education and encouragement.

We provide opportunity for the supported community to build their community in the way they want.  

We offer education, ideas and examples the community may like to adapt to their situation. 

We also offer the community start-up equipment and supplies and education for them to develop small income generating business.

Hearts & Hands Community Development has successfully helped communities experiencing extreme poverty and despair to improve their situation. We have now introduced two additional projects.

These projects are;

"It's not OK to hurt a child. Every day it's NOT OK"

This project is currently in operation in Australia & Philippines. You can join in and make a difference.

  • Butterfly Hearts support the disabled members of our community.  This project was named Butterfly Hearts because just like the butterfly had to undergo major change to become truly free; so to our disabled community can become truly free.  The Butterfly Hearts project is an information, support and encouragement web-based tool that people living with mobility issues (disability) will find helpful.
