Charity Hands seeks to make a difference in the lives of the needy in India and Cameroon. They have launched many self-sustaining projects, such as giving access to clean drinking water, supplying microcredits to gypsy families living in the slums of Chennai, etc. They expose this in the pay-off: "Give a man a fish and he will eat for one day; teach him how to fish and he will eat for life". Charity Hands was one of the sponsors of the LOTI Free IT Training project in Bamenda, Cameroon.
