About Hands4Others (H40)
Hands4others (H4O) is a grass roots organization founded in the fall of 2008 in Santa Barbara by several teenagers from the community.  Having traveled outside the United States, they could not shake the images of children and families forced to spend most of their time gathering insufficient amounts of dirty water - water most of us would not bathe in, let alone drink. Their response to this crisis was to form Hands4others (H4O), a movement of young people (who together with our families) have been called to change the world one person, one family, one village at a time by providing sustainable access to safe, drinkable water for those in need. To date, children and families in 11 countries around the world are currently provided with safe water because of the efforts of H4O and the generous contributions from supporters.
