The main objective of this project is to bring volunteers to Ethiopia with the intention of helping the women and children of the Hosanna area. It is an exchange of knowledge and culture that supposes a great hope for people who in many cases are without prospects, so that they have the possibility of growing and getting improvements in their living conditions. On the other hand, we, the volunteers, also gain a lot with this experience because everything we give is received back. Being a volunteer is an act of love, so it is certain that we will win a lot in this project.
Through a Crowdfunding campaign we are asking for help to make the first trip where we will structure all the logistics of the program and discover all the real needs of the women who live in this area of Hosanna.

Who we are
Daniela Marcolla Since I returned from my trip to Ethiopia last year, Africa is inside my heart. Helping women and children to have a little more knowledge and hope in their lives is what I can say is my life alm. Photographing and filming all the work that we are going to do there, is my mission in this first trip. So I hope to start showing the world that if we help, we can improve the lives of many people. And so I do my bit in this story.
Yaiza Sánchez Storniolo Born in Madrid, from a Brazilian mother and a Spanish father. After finishing my degree in Psychology, I lived for a period of time in Belgium and I am now settled in England. I am a committed person and fully aware of my responsibility for the work I do. Over the years I have had the opportunity to collaborate in different voluntary services in different countries, both with children and adults. This has allowed me the opportunity to expand my experiences and knowledge whilst acquiring new skills.
When I was given the opportunity to collaborate on We Lend A Hand, I knew we had the potential to do something great and precious. The excitement I feel towards this project, the experience and the help we will offer will allow We Lend A Hand the opportunity to be a true entity of transforming the reality of female lives in Ethiopia. We will work to help vulnerable people within their own community. Our organization will be involved and committed to address existing needs within the collective objectives. T aim of our voluntary and supportive participation is to provide and generate in the women themselves the capacity to find a sustainable solution for their problems.

Yvonne Anna-Marie Chambers Born and raised in Birmingham, England, I work as a child counselor. Since always, I have felt my life path was to be able to improve the situation for the most disadvantaged people. Even though sometimes is very hard, I love my job and when I was proposed to be part of this project, I knew this was the next step to take. I believe that we the right tools, we can improve the inequality that a lot of communities suffer. That is what we are looking for at We Lend a Hand, to make accessible the opportunities to grow in a personal way and as a society
Caroline Timm Brazilian, born in Porto Alegre, capital of the ‘gauchos’ in the South of Brazil.
“Since I was little I accompanied my grandfather and my mother who have been politicians at the time and maintained communication in the street with the less favored citizens, and I was there with them, this is a value that I appreciate that I have been taught since childhood, to be assertive and see the social reality that are social differences.
Since then, this solidary work has come to the fore in my heart and I have understood how much we have to do to have a better world.
I have volunteered in various social causes, such as at the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, and in many non-profit projects in Madrid for Brazilian children and women.
I am a publicist and specialized in Digital Marketing, I believe a lot in social networks and the power that we can distribute, raise awareness and mobilize a large number of people with a nice message of support to help women in Ethiopia.
Being in the team of We Lend A Hand is being and will be very nice and I am sure that we will achieve our goals that is to help, help and help this very delicate population that is very disadvantaged that is the Ethiopia.
