About Caring Hands Foundation
Caring Hands Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2012 and headquartered in California, United States. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity dedicated to improving the lives of those less fortunate, both locally and abroad. We have led a multitude of projects ranging from building schools to providing resources at homeless shelters to improving access to healthcare. Locally, we primarily conduct community outreach to homeless shelters in California. Over the years, we have spearheaded global projects to conduct relief operations, construction of educational facilities, training & education in India. Recently, we have expanded our global outreach to include projects in Kenya, Haiti, and Nepal.
Caring Hands Foundation is an all volunteer-led organization. 100% of your contributions will reach intended beneficiaries.
We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive regardless of their background. Our goal is to help the disadvantaged by improving access to education, shelter, and healthcare, among others. Caring Hands Foundation believes that individuals can make a profound difference by actively exercising their ability to create positive change. The mission of Caring Hands is to provide an easy platform for volunteerism so that people can contribute positively in their local community through community outreach programs and in the global community by adopting well-contained projects of existing organizations overseas.
We strongly believe in the saying, "be the change you wish to see in the world" by Mahatma Gandhi. We wish to improve the world by addressing inequalities in society and helping the disadvantaged. Our philosophy is that every life we touch, we inspire to do better for others. In this way, we are able to better the world.
Over the years, we have done over 20 projects, affecting hundreds of lives.
