We are so excited to introduce you to this wonderful organization! Extending Hands, really is all about giving hope to the hopeless.
In 2008 Kristin Choitz had the opportunity to meet the women of Zambia, and it changed her life forever. Out of that experience grew the idea for Extending Hands, an organization dedicated to providing the opportunity for a sustainable living to the widows and vulnerable women of Zambia who are affected by or infected with HIV/AIDS.
Through Extending Hands, Kristin and her husband Ben have created a marketplace from which the women can sell their handcrafted jewelry. In the male-dominated culture of Zambia, opportunities such as this are extremely scarce for the more than half million husbandless women are infected with HIV/AIDS.
This spring, Extending Hands is launching a campaign to bring hope in the form of soap and seeds. Soap and seeds may not seem like anything special to us, but to these women, they are the power to wash and feed their families. Just $15 a month provides a woman with 2 bars of soap and 8 packets of seeds to plant indigenous fruits and vegetables. You can help by pledging to sponsor a woman monthly, or by offering a one-time gift. Get involved today!
