OUR GOAL

Hand in Hand Switzerland was founded in 2013 as an expert entity to support the activities of Hand in Hand India, Cambodia, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. Registered in 2004, Hand in Hand India, our founding organization, started its operations on a humble scale with a vision to eradicate child labour in Kancheepuram, a district in Tamil Nadu in South India known for its 500-year-old silk weaving industry. Children here were being exploited as a cheap source of labour. Many children were bonded to work for life, when their poor parents could not afford to pay back loans taken from employers. Dr. Kalpana Sankar, Hand in Hand India's founder, thus evolved the first 'Child Labour Elimination program' to set these children free from child labour. .
