Handshakes for Humanity

Reaching out to shake someone’s hand shows a sign of respect, trust, and compassion.  For many people, a simple handshake does not come easy. Now you can help make hands more attainable to those who have lost this ability.

This inspiring exercise combines tools, technology, and a unique twist on the old game of “telephone”. Groups divide into teams of five or more to follow instructions and build a working prosthetic hand. The new hands will give utility and mobility to deserving children around the world.
