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.
- Fair Trade
- Social Entrepreneurship
- Business in low income communities
- Engagement of corporate core competencies
- Capacity building
- Intellectual capital
- Codes of Practice
- and more
With the broadening menu of partnership choices, Global Hand has broadened its scope too.
