What we do
Hand in Hand Southern Africa seeks to create jobs and to develop micro enterprises in-order to promote self-reliance at individual, household and community level. The facilitation of skills development interventions thus in turn, contribute to economic growth at local levels. Over the years HIH has developed an Enterprise Development model which is premised on the need to create sustainable income-generating activities. The model provides for unlocking access to funding and enhancing market linkages for a comprehensive job creation model.
