Transforming the Lives of People for a Better World.

This new status allows us to channel an even greater percentage of our resources to directly impact the lives of people in need across Guyana. It has also opened up many exciting possibilities for us – and discussions are currently underway with major charitable foundations and business entities around the world that we hope to partner with in the coming months.

GUYANA: Central Georgetown on a Sunny Day

 Have a nice day!  Today we took our camera to the roof of the Hand in Hand Building to get a never before seen look at central Georgetown on a sunny day. Photos by Alva Solomon.
A view of City Hall. The edifice has been deemed one of the more Gothic sights in terms of architecture in Georgetown. The building is featured in many mediums locally and internationally as being very picturesque . The building itself has been through a tough period in recent years and the previous and current administration have announced plans to carry out critical rehabilitation works on the structure which was built in 1889.
