Our Track Record
Hand in Hand has been active in South Africa since 2005 when it assisted the government in establishing its "Jobs for growth" programme. Since then, the organization has evolved into a direct service provider, creating and developing SHGs, income-generating projects, and enterprises. Southern Africa (HiH SA) now operates in 4 countries namely South Africa, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, and Lesotho. At the end of 2013, HIH SA was working with over 90,000 women in 18016 SHGs. Through these SHGs, HIH has helped to create over 17312 enterprises, as well as assisting members with their own formal businesses. Having taken time to establish a strong working model, HIH SA has ambitious expansion plans to other Southern African countries and facilitate the creation of more micro enterprises with more job opportunities.
