The safety and well-being of our volunteers, staff, partners and the community members we work alongside come first at All Hands and Hearts. We recognize this work must be continuous and ongoing to maintain a place where everyone can thrive.

We are committed to creating a safe and supportive environment within our organization, both on and off programs. Our Well-being department works with leading social science experts in the field of Humanitarian Relief and Well-being to implement essential policies and ensure we continuously investigate and improve our training and resources.

As a result of this informed approach, we offer readily available resources for our teams to utilize so they feel empowered and supported to put their well-being first.
