Review for Hands To Hearts International, Oakland, CA, USA
I've been a long time supporter and volunteer(technical support) for Hands to Hearts Int, a growing and ambitious organization committed to change the life of children when they are the most vulnerable : early infancy and addressing an often overlooked aspect of our lives (particular in under-developed countries): emotional attachment. Incorporating key elements of communication & hygiene and supporting the emancipation of women, HHI program is a big success story , as I was able to witness during a visit to one of their working sites near Theni, in Tamil Nadu (India). Mothers and care-givers discovered a new level of attachment and care for their babies and an enhanced commitment for their upbringing. Fathers become also interested in the training and more involved with their babies than before. The numbers tell the same success story: over 100,000 children across 4 countries benefited from this program. None of this would have happen without the dedication and hard work of HHI's founder and leader Laura Peterson. She is the ever-working engine focused on efficiency and making the most impact with the limited resources of a emerging non-profit.
