Providing a
Life of Choice
Since 2005

Sponsor a Child

For nearly 20 years, Hands Across the Water has sought to provide equal value to those that support the work that we do as much as those that benefit from the support that we generate. The value that has flowed back to those that provide financial support to the charity has been in witnessing the growth and development of the children in a safe and happy environment, but it has also been in the participation in meaningful shared experiences that have enriched their lives.

This is our journey.

Hands started out supporting 34 children in the small community of Khao Lak and due to the increased demand of our services and through the generosity of our community and valued partners has expanded its reach to care for 350 children across 7 projects in Thailand. Hands has gone from employing one staff member to providing employment to over 60 people across Thailand.

Hands Across the Water Projects

Hands Across the Water runs seven homes and projects throughout Thailand supporting over 350 Thai children and their communities. While our origins date back to the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004, the need to support children who haven't been dealt the best cards in life is very much still there. We are committed for the long term and that means that all children in our care will have a brighter future and a life of choice.


Our Rides

Since 2009 Hands Across the Water (Hands) has run charity bike rides such as our annual January "Ride to Provide". Every year the money raised from these ride experiences provides critical funding to the operations of the seven homes Hands supports across Thailand, housing over 350 kids.

At Hands we work on the principle that supporting charity should be good for you, not just those receiving the money. Personally benefiting from your involvement in charity, be it physically or mentally, or both as we find in our riders' feedback, creates a profound experience that delivers impact, which will last a lifetime.

These rides provide many benefits to Hands, as well as to our riders and partner organisations including sales and relationship building with clients, broadened horizons and mindsets, and improved employee health, motivation, and engagement.
