Reaching Hand Trust works with vulnerable children, marginalized women & deprived families to empower them to lead a life of hope, self-worth and dignity through quality education, health care and skill development. Their mission is to Create opportunities, Connect with beneficiaries and Collaborate with like-minded partners.

Major Programs are:

Namma Shale - A government school adoption Program: Reaching Hand partners with government schools & Department of Public Instruction to improve the quality of education by providing students and teachers with infrastructure facility, trainings and learning equipment. It reaches out to over 6,800 students and 360 teachers across 24 schools. Their aim is to make the adopted school become model schools in society over a period of time.

New Home: Reaching Hand has rented two shelter homes for orphans and destitute children consisting of 46 children (23 girls & 23 boys). The aim is to reduce the suffering of the abandoned, destitute, and vulnerable children by providing them necessary support, protection, nutritious food, health care, and quality education along with life skills so that they become more productive. The NGO aims to have its own permanent Home where they can accommodate 500 children.

Scholarship:  Through its scholarship program Reaching Hand provides financial support to children who desire to continue higher studies. Till date the NGO has supported over 70 beneficiaries for their education. Underprivileged children and youths who are at risk of becoming school dropouts or who discontinue studies for various reasons (often financial) are given a chance to take their education further.

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) program: Through the Girls Glory project, Reaching Hand builds toilets, provides sanitary pads and educates girls about proper hygiene and sanitation in government schools. This helps prevent early dropouts, improves health and education, and also encourages them to live a dignified life. During the year, around 400 girls from 10 schools were provided with sanitary pads, 2 toilets were constructed & 5 toilets are under construction.

Women Empowerment: Reaching Hand trains women in candle making, chocolate making, bag making, etc. with the aim of making them self-sufficient & a contributor to family income.
