Imagine a continent that has most of the arable land in the world but is a continent where every five seconds one child under the age of ten dies of hunger and four out of ten Africans sleep hungry every night. More precisely: put to sleep and got forgotten.
So, our story started with ‘thinking about a continent’. That continent was none other than the AFRICAN CONTINENT, which fired the wick in our hearts with its oppression, deprivation, and embarrassment, but most importantly, made us fall in love with its humanity.
This journey, which we started with love, was fruitful and brought us to the point of establishing our association ‘Hands Giving Lives’. We await everyone who is sincere to this journey and philosophy of goodness. Our aim is to grow by helping all beings in need and look forward to seeing you among us.
Despite a developing world with more and more possibilities, Africa is a continent that is left alone. Millions of people are suffering from hunger and have difficulties in accessing potable water. We believe in changes and we join forces to ameliorate all of the sufferings people encounter, especially in African countries.
Hands Giving Lives was established in Istanbul in 2017 as a platform. In 2020 it became an association to aid families in need and to contribute to their integration into the social field. Hands Giving Lives works actively in Africa to increase cooperation and awareness in the fields of education, health and economy.
Continuing our work until we improve the living standards of people who have suffered at home and abroad, especially in Africa. We aim to benefit every needy child we can reach and to eliminate all kinds of victimization situations. By doing these it is crucial to use our recourses correctly and effectively. We also aim to convey our experiences we gained in the field to other people.
