Hand in Hand International

We help millions of women to work their way out of poverty

Charity Registration No. 1113868

Story

During the last few years, Jakob & Jakob – together with my dad, Jozef – have raised more than 70 000 SEK for charity. Reece’s Rainbow, UNICEF, the Children’s Ward at St Francis’ Hospital and Hope For Children are the organisations that we have supported through our running. This year, we have chosen to raise money for another kind of organisation. Hand in Hand International was founded in 2003 by Dr Kalpana Sankar and Percy Barnevik, and their initial goal was to get local children out of factories and into schools. With time however, it became clear that in order to deal effectively with child labor they needed to get to the root of the problem: combating poverty. And what better way to deal with this problem than creating jobs? Which is why Hand in Hand started to focus on fighting poverty through creating jobs with grassroots entrepreneurship.

Jakob & Jakob and Jozef have decided to support Hand in Hand International and will raise money for the charity in connection with their big adventure this year; the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc. We hope that you, our readers, supporters, friends, families and co-workers will once again take up the challenge and donate money to this honourable cause.
