Ongoing Projects


Santa ana boarding school

Declared unsafe in 2013, the Santa Ana Boarding School was used as a housing area, for more than 30 orphan girls, and school, where more than 150 children attend classes everyday including orphans and poor children from surrounding villages, and has become the main project of Extending A Hand. Construction began on the new Santa Ana Boarding School on June 7th, 2018. 

backpacks of love

Each year we support children from the Santa Ana and Nazareth Orphan schools, sick seniors from the Guillermo Greffestein Elderly Home, and other poor kids from the villages around Agua de Dios with a backpacks drive campaign, delivering backpacks full of primary necessities to those in need.
