Working to improve the lives of children in Cambodia and other impoverished areas of South East Asia.
Hands on Helping offers free educational opportunities to children in poor countries. From opening libraries to running our main project, the Pinnacle Community Classroom, we use education to open doors for children who have few options to succeed in life. We run our own projects from start up on to ensure full cost control and reduce wasted funding that commonly plagues charitable projects in third world countries.
In Countries like Cambodia, learning English is often key to finding employment opportunities.
Connecting doctors and medicine to those that need it most.
For only $6.30 a month per student we provide English lessons 5 days a week at our Pinnacle Classroom
It all began in 2004 when HOH founder Ryan Anderson volunteered at an orphanage in Kathmandu Nepal for 5 weeks.
Raising $3000 prior to arriving in Nepal, Ryan saw that even small amounts of money can bring big changes to impoverished children.
Now, ten plus years later we operate independent of local charities that often are mismanaged.
We collaborate with trusted local people and through networks we know.
Currently we have over 120 students studying English at our classroom in Cambodia.
We offer quarterly rewards like bicycles for top testing students.
Moving forward we want to be able to open more doors for our students.
We want to provide scholarships, job skills training and internships to our students who complete all 5 levels of English.
More funding is needed
