Many Hands Make Light Work

Lend A Hand Bahamas (LAHB), is a Bahamian nonprofit that seeks to bring more activities and opportunities to socio-economically disadvantaged areas of the Bahamas. Currently, we are mainly operating in Grant’s Town/ Bain’s Town with smaller initiatives in Abaco, Bahamas.

The long-term goal of our organization is to work with other community partners to construct a much-needed community centre in the inner-city “over the hill” area of Nassau in Grant’s Town.

If you would like to learn more about the capital campaign for the centre or possibly help fund a program please send a request for more information to lendahandbahamas@gmail.com. Help make a difference and join us!
