The Association was founded in Helsingborg Helping in the autumn of 2005 to financially support Ngamwanza Children Support Centre, a school for orphaned and vulnerable children in Nairobi, Kenya.
Helping Hand is a non-profit organization and is open to all who want to join in and contribute to the school’s existence and development of the child. The aim is to take charge of the school’s operating costs, which include salaries as well as food, clothing and health care for 50 children from 4 to 12 years of age, whose parents died of Hiv/Aids.

90–account or not?
Many people in Sweden ask “Why do you have no 90 account?“ The answer is not so simple. It is a security for you as a donor, to associations engaged in collection will also be verified that you do not use too much of the funds raised to the administration. It requires that at least 75% of the money will go to those in need. More than 25% must not be lost in administrative costs.
