A Reaching Hand supports partnerships because true to our philosophy that  "A drop of rain is insignificant but together we can make a river",  we also believe in the one for all and all for one spirit of Ubuntu.

A Reaching Hand has formed collaborative partnerships with consenting organisations/institutions such as the University of South Africa (UNISA), the Tygerberg Art Centre (TAC) and compassionate individuals. We have done this so that we may share resources to accomplish mutual goals and to make a difference together. 

A Reaching Hand, the University of South Africa, and the Tygerberg Art Centre share a similar vision, that being to serve humanity. Through our partnership we continue to work together on projects targeting underserved and vulnerable communities through community engagement initiatives that demonstrate social responsibility. One of the ways in which we do this is by making available expertise and infrastructure with a sharp focus on human health and wellbeing. 

Thus far we have collaborated on providing courses and workshops to community members and inmates at Pollsmoor Prison.  These courses and workshops have addressed skills development and education with regard to health and nutrition, art therapy, artisan bread-baking, sewing, hand-knitting, and robotics, reaching over 300 direct beneficiaries thus far.  Indirectly families and communities have benefitted substantially from our interventions.

One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu - the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality - Ubuntu - you are known for your generosity.
