The workshop caters to groups any size from half-a-dozen to thousands of participants. It typically fits into 2-4 hours. We can deliver it at any location of your choice. It works perfectly as a plug-in module for conferences, meetings, teambuilding events, company off-sites etc.

  2. Intermezzo
    introduction of the Helping Hands Project
  3. Project simulation
    assembly of fully functional LN-4 prostheses and design of personal messages for the recipients
  4. Debrief
    transfer of the workshop experience into everyday life and workplace

80% of the funds raised come from Helping Hands workshops with corporate groups

About 80% of all funds raised by the Ellen Meadows Foundation come from the Helping Hands workshops. The remaining part comes from donors and public funding. No more than 5% of the funds are spent on operational costs, i.e. 95% of all funds raised goes to the end-recipients.
