With an in-depth understanding of the development sector, Joining Hands felt the need for an organization that would help NGOs access unaffordable but much needed skills and professional talent. They also perceived the need of a section of people who believe in social change and want to contribute their time, skills and talent for the benefit of the community, but are uncertain about how to do it. Joining Hands, a nonprofit organization, was founded to address the needs of both these sections of people by facilitating their coming together to move towards greater progress of the social development sector.
