Helping Hands Team Building Program - Changing Lives
Updated: Sep 30
Are you looking for a unique team building activity that will have huge impact on the participant and help change lives?
The Helping Hands Program is a truly unique opportunity for organisations to get involved with a worthwhile cause at the same time as super-charging employee engagement.
More than just a team building or training activity, participants in our programs build prosthetic hands that are then donated to amputee landmine victims throughout the developing world. The activity empowers every participant in just a few hours to make a real and lasting contribution and in doing so reminds people what it feels like to be engaged in a truly purposeful activity.
Did you know over 100,000,000 land mines are still active around the world, with 2000 accidents happening every month; most of them being children. Unfortunately there are still over 300,000 - 400,000 victims in need of a prosthetic hand, with a growing demand.
The sponsors of our programs purchase the hands which are made up of 30 parts, and assembled by 3-4 members of your team. At the end of the session, they will have completed making their hand and will realise they have made a significant difference to someone’s life. Each prophetic hand is delivered to a specific part of the world and the hand is fitted by a specialist. Touching videos of these amazing gifts being given to the recipients are shared at the end of each session.
If you feel inspired to sponsor a team building activity, or share this article with someone you know, we would highly appreciate it. We are aiming to reach our goal of donating 20,000 prosthetic hands by 2020.
We look forward to helping you implement a meaningful team building activity and become part of helping to create social change.
