We believe that everyone in the world is connected and when others are hurting and struggling it makes our world incomplete.
As Jenny understands how difficult it is to navigate a developed country as a disabled person with a job and great health care; She can't imagine the hardships of those navigating underdeveloped countries like Sierra Leone where the helpful hands foundation is location. Sierra Leone has ravished by war and ebola over the past decades leaving millions disabled and poverty stricken.

We have started helping Twenty (20) less privileged children /Disabled with school materials and others basic amenities. It's our yearly school project to help the children with school materials.
Our sustainable project of Helpful Hands Foundation Sierra Leone is to do a business plan which will generate income for the children , our current business plan is for us to have a purchase a motor bike to use as a taxi and a generator to support a car wash; which will generate income for the children.
