Why Global Hand's new iteration?

The world is a different place than it was when Global Hand began in 2002. At that time, when people got together in response to global challenges, they typically did so in a traditional philanthropic way. Perhaps they gave goods. Perhaps they volunteered a ‘service’ day. Perhaps they wrote an occasional cheque.

Today, however, partnerships are taking very different shape, offering new solutions and strategies.

  • Microcredit
  • Fair Trade
  • Social Entrepreneurship
  • Business in low income communities
  • Engagement of corporate core competencies
  • Capacity building
  • Intellectual capital
  • Advocacy
  • Codes of Practice
  • and more


With the broadening menu of partnership choices, Global Hand has broadened its scope too.
