In the summer of 2004 the members of Christian music group, Audio Adrenaline, founded the Hands and feet Project. The project, inspired by fan reaction to the song “Hands and Feet”, is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing long-term, family style care for orphaned and abandoned children. In late 2004 the first piece of land was purchased, and construction began in early 2005. Our first little girl arrived in the spring of 2005, and we now care for over 100 children ranging in age from infant to 22 years old.
The organization broke ground on their first Children’s village in Jacmel, a small town on the Southern coast, and began their journey of serving the forgotten children of the impoverished Caribbean nation. Now, the Project has grown to include multiple locations across the southern peninsula and sets its sights on caring for one thousand orphaned children by the year 2016.
::What We Do::
Hands and Feet Project Vision
Our vision is two fold. First, we will strive to raise a generation of orphaned children who will grow up to reach their God given potential. Second, we will empower first world citizens to partner with us in service at home and abroad.
Currently we are focused on building Children’s villages in the Caribbean nation of Haiti. Each village is built with the dual purpose of caring for orphans and providing a place for partners to come serve with us on short term mission trips. Our villages are lead by American and Haitian staff members who are committed to the Hands and Feet family values.
