Our Philosophy

Collaboration is essential in addressing chronic social challenges. We firmly believe that education is one of the key elements to driving effective social change.


We believe that our communities need bolder and committed approaches to social change and development. We are dedicated to contributing towards finding new, innovative ways and ideas in tackling the various social ills and challenges. The Helping Hands Trust partners with individuals and organisations that share their commitment to engage our communities in creating opportunities to work towards a better life for all.
